The Next Step

Outreach, Advocacy, and Leadership

Abstract

This chapter explores the next steps in a copyright librarian's career, namely outreach, advocacy, and leadership. Once the librarian has become copyright literate, it's time to take the knowledge, information, and experience gained to a larger audience. This is accomplished through educational programming, advocating for copyright reform that benefits both information creators and consumers, and taking a leadership position in local, regional, and national copyright debate.
