Does copyright have you perplexed? Don’t worry. The doctor is in and ready to prescribe an antidote. Pat Ball, from the Cobb County Public Library in Marietta, Ga., is on ALA’s Copyright subcommittee and can direct you to all the right answers. She prescribed the handy-dandy slide guide titled “Is it Protected by Copyright?” available in the ALA Store. Simply slide the insert to the  specific timeframe and set the arrow on the date. Then read the information that appears in the window.  It’s lightweight, efficient, and highly affordable for quick reference questions. And there are plenty of notes on the back panels for more details. How about unpublished works?Yep, that’s covered too, along with a URL for the Copyright Advisory Network (www.librarycopyright.net). The doctor also gave me a free sample flash drive from the Copyright Advisory Network, just in case.
