EU Copyright Reform: Why Libraries Should Care

White, Ben; Lovegrove, Helena

Europe is preparing to implement significant changes to copyright law, and this will inevitably influence how research libraries function.

LIBER’s Copyright & Legal Matters Working Group has been actively participating in the copyright reform process, speaking up for research libraries and arguing for changes which will support better access to information and new technologies such as Text and Data Mining.

These slides relate to a webinar given on 4 June by working group members Ben White (British Library) and Helena Lovegrove (LIBER's Advocacy Advisor). In the webinar, they share the latest news on the European Commission’s proposal, and the implications for research and libraries if the legislation is passed in its current form.

The webinar recording will be made available on YouTube:
