Following a turbulent period of Brexit and its potential impact on UK copyright law, a new EU Copyright Directive and important developments in UK copyright law implementation, practice and licensing, it is essential you understand how these will impact library and information professionals, your organisation and the users of the services you provide.

This year’s Copyright Conference is an ideal and unique opportunity for all librarians, archivists and information professionals to update their knowledge and professional practice in this crucial area. Additionally, it will appeal to those who want to update their general copyright, licensing and publishing knowledge.


This event will also provide opportunities for debate about key topics; participation in Q&A sessions and a return of the quick fire lightning talks throughout the day. The programme has yet again been developed in association with Naomi Korn Associates and Naomi Korn will be chairing the conference.
