  • One at One: Educators & Copyright Laws During COVID-19

Today’s Issue:

Can educators read books aloud while live streaming, or post books online, without violating copyright laws?

Answer:

In response to COVID-19 and remote learning, many children’s publishers have temporarily altered their policies to permit educators to read to their students remotely. The School Library Journal has compiled a searchable list of publishers and their COVID-19 policies, some have also made materials available online free of cost.
