Session abstract: 
With the passing of the Canadian Copyright Modernization Act and Supreme Court of Canada decisions of July 2012, a need existed at one community college to expand its recording capabilities for copyrighted materials. Using a case study approach, this session will focus on the process the college used to create an online database application to track copyright records for the institution. More importantly, and integrating approaches used at other postsecondary institutions, the college enhanced the application so that it would enable faculty and staff to do fair dealing evaluations of learning materials. Thus, the online application was developed to
a) raise the level of copyright compliance and
b) enable faculty and staff to quickly check and see if the resources they wish to use are covered under Fair Dealing Guidelines.
The session will feature a demonstration of the college’s online application.

Learning objectives:
  1. Describe the purpose and rationale behind the college’s decision for a) revising its copyright database and b) creating a user-focused fair dealing application.
  2. Assess whether the college’s solution for a fair dealing application is applicable to your own institutional context.
