Statement from ALSC : ALSC is aware, through our colleagues at the Children’s Book Council, that children’s book publishing teams are actively working to help support virtual reading and learning opportunities during this unprecedented time. We know that many publishers are exploring their ability to share their licensing/copyright information in terms of virtual use, as it becomes available, with librarians and educators. Please understand that there are many layers to obtaining authorization, and several stakeholders (authors, rights & permissions staff, legal departments) must be consulted on these matters, which takes time to coordinate. In the meantime, however, we’ve learned, via the message below, that Penguin Random House is offering temporary open access to their materials.
Even though virtual story time might fall under Fair Use, this does NOT mean that you can archive or save on your website.
