The Kraemer Copyright Conference is a dynamic and enriching FREE conference that offers academic, public, special, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law, recent updates to the law, and how it impacts the services we offer our library users. This conference provides an opportunity for professionals at every level and across libraries to discuss the importance of copyright in libraries.

Open Roads To Open Access

This year's Kraemer Copyright Conference will discuss the copyright implications of open access. Under open access, published works are available to users with no financial, legal, or technical restrictions. Some benefits include immediacy, rapid disperse of innovative ideas inciting new studies, impact and citations, and author and institution visibility. Do not miss the opportunity to learn more about open access. 

We will have an excellent group of keynote speakers, including:

  • Kenneth Crews, Attorney, author, professor, and international copyright consultant 
  • Kyle Courtney, Copyright Advisor, Harvard University 
  • Sandra Aya Enimil, Copyright Librarian and Contracting Specialist, Yale University
  • Pia Hunter, Access Librarian and Online Learning Consultant, Teaching Assistant Professor, Law Library, University of Illinois
