The Code of Best Practices for Fair Use in the Visual Arts is a key guiding document detailing the legal and ethical use of images in the visual arts for creative and scholarly purposes. Drawing from the Code, this workshop will equip librarians and art information professionals with tools and strategies to teach fair use practices. The workshop will give attendees an understanding of fair use issues, when and how fair use can be integrated into library instruction, and how to address the legal questions surrounding image use while maintaining the line between reference/instruction and legal advice.

Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences with fair use, as well as preview and workshop the resources that will comprise the ARLIS/NA Fair Use Instructional Materials project. These resources will focus on hands-on active learning, and may include example presentations, interactive exercises, group activities, example worksheets, among other possibilities. This workshop will ultimately enable art information professionals to provide fair use guidance and instruction at their own institutions.
