Introduction to Information Policy in Libraries-free webinar

Information policy establishes rights and responsibilities related to the proper use, preservation and provision of information. Under the Library Bill of Rights, Florida library patrons have the privilege to freely access and express information. However, patrons also have the duty to observe library policies and federal laws, such as U.S. copyright law.

Florida libraries can effectively fulfill their mission through the guidance of information policy. Creating library policies enables libraries to balance rights to information with user expectations and resource limitations, allowing them to offer services while respecting the interests and concerns of all.

Continuing Education Consultant Patrick Milas presents an introduction to information policy topics relevant to Florida libraries. Exploring the history of American libraries, the Library Bill of Rights and legislation affecting public libraries, this webinar is designed for new Florida library staff and volunteers with no prior experience or education in information policy.
