Section 108 - Copyright "Spinner"

California School Library Association 08/09 President Connie Williams alerted members to a cool "spinner" tool, Section 108 copyright of the U.S. Copyright Code. The code allows libraries, under certain circumstances, to make reproductions of copyrighted materials without express permission of the copyright holder. Visitors to the site can move the computer mouse to "spin" the wheel to learn the law related to five areas:
  • preservation
  • replacement
  • last 20 years
  • entire works for users
  • portions for users
