Please join us for this nine-part webinar series exploring the various services the Empire State Library Network has to offer.
“Ask the Lawyer” (ATL) is a resource-sharing effort to give libraries, museums and archives access to timely guidance and advice about legal issues impacting mission and operations. Since 2016, the ATL service has been providing answers to members of participating Library Resource Councils in New York State. ATL features questions submitted by librarians, connecting real-world situations to practical, timely, and ethics-focused legal commentary, on topics such as Ethics, Copyright, Trademark, Not-for-Profit law, Information access, CPLR 4509, Contracts, Format transfer, Preservation, Library policies, and more.
