Charleston Library Conference 

Jul 30, 2019

Today, we’ll hear Part 1 of our Penthouse Suite Interview with Ruth Okediji. Ruth is interviewed by Against the Grain’s Tom Gilson and Ann Okerson of  Center for Research Libraries. It’s really interesting to hear Ruth describe her path to copyright law, why copyright law is not her favorite thing to teach, and why learning is better in community.
