What Copyright Librarians Know

Abstract

In this chapter, the importance of copyright specialization is discussed, along with the role of copyright librarianship as an evolving specialization within the LIS field. The interest in copyright and the trend toward specialization is demonstrated by the growth of literature surrounding the topic, as well as the increased number of articles, books, jobs, and continuing education opportunities. The chapter closes with a listing and description of things every copyright librarian needs to know and comments by practitioners about the challenges and benefits of copyright specialization.
