ARL Applauds New Best Practices for OERs From American University
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) announced that it has endorsed a document from American University’s Washington College of Law and Center for Media & Social Impact: the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Educational Resources. The code “is a tool for educators, librarians, and authors to evaluate common professional scenarios in which fair use can enable them to incorporate inserts, including those protected by copyright, to create OER. It can provide groups working on OER projects with a shared framework for evaluating and understanding when and how to incorporate existing content to meet pedagogical needs.”
