The critical role librarians play in the opioid crisis (TED Talk)
Public libraries have always been about more than just books — and their mission of community support has taken on new urgency during the current opioid epidemic. After witnessing overdoses at her library in Philadelphia, Chera Kowalski learned how to administer naloxone, a drug that reverses the effects of narcotics, and she’s put it to use to save patrons’ lives. In this personal talk, she shares the day-to-day reality of life on the frontline of the opioid crisis and advocates for each of us to find new ways to keep our communities safe and healthy.
Copyright and Standardized Rights Statements for Digital Collections (North Dakota State Library)
Copyright can be a difficult task to undertake when it comes to digital collections, especially with uncertainty about legal language and object originations. This webinar will discuss how to make informed copyright decisions with tools available, and how to utilize standardized rights statements for clearer copyright and reuse descriptions.
