A current review of the state of copyright in Canadian Academic Libraries will be presented. In recent years, copyright has become a major issue for universities and colleges in Canada. Many institutions have had to confront copyright issues and make serious decisions about the future of copyright in their libraries. Successful information literacy and instruction is dependent on librarians’ ability to access and share information. Alternatives to licensing and publishing will also be discussed in relation to copyright. This poster will review and present copyright issues from 2010 to present.
