Social Media services are some of the latest tools libraries use to communicate with their users.

•        Does your library have facebook, twitter and flickr accounts?

•        Do you understand their terms-of-service, and know what may be negotiable?

•        Do you create content for your library's social media sites?

•        Do children use your social media sites?

•        Does your library have a social media policy?

In this one-hour webinar, you will:

•        learn some copyright pointers, including two important steps you can take to protect your library from secondary liability if users post copyright-protected content in the comments sections.

•        understand what you may delete, and what you shouldn't delete without a lawyer's advice.

•        look at privacy issues of special concern with children.

•        see a sample policy that you can use as a starting point.

This one-hour webinar will be of interest to Public Service staff, Library Administrators, all staff contributing to social media, and individuals responsible for creating library policies.
