  • Feelings are still mixed on the copyright issues surrounding Pinterest. Pinterest’s terms of service is essentially removing them from responsibility and placing the burden of responsibility on users. This makes some people very nervous! However, it is not much different than other social networking sites which encourage you to share information and pass on content. The internet is a culture of sharing! Pinterest allows website owners to add code which prevents their images from being pinned and has a link to a complaint form. Others will add pin it buttons encouraging you to pin their content. Many feel that Pinterest usage falls under fair use in the library.
    Fair Use:
    The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
    The nature of the copyrighted work
    The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
    The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
  • 6 tips for smarter, safer, pinning- YALSA blog post
    “Pin your own content with the intent to share.  Sharing our ideas is one of the strengths of the YALSA community. We can confidently repin each other’s images if we post them with sharing in mind.
    Pin images when creators have attached a “Pin Me” button. They are inviting you to share as well.
    Pin original posts and include links with your pins. Pinterest suggests doing so on their etiquette page.  Attribution does not necessarily make copies legal under fair use, but it is always a good idea to give credit to creators.  And it can help you find the source of a pin when you want to learn more.
    Pin things licensed with Creative Commons licenses. Most creators who license their work this way invite sharing as long as you give them credit and link back to their work. Learn more about the different kinds of licenses from Creative Commons here.
    Some amount of pinning and repinning is covered under fair use.  Educate yourself and use your judgement. Library law consultant Mary Minow’s post “How I Learned to Love Fair Use” is a good place to start.
    When in doubt, ask! Send an email to a content creator. Tell her how much you like her photograph, Skittles pixel art, felted iPod cover, or whatever and ask if you can pin it on your board. The worst she can say is no, and even if she doesn’t want you to pin her image, you might make a useful connection in opening up a conversation”
  • First things first: make sure you communicate what your are doing with ALL staff members. Have someone in charge who is interested in Pinterest and willing to put the time into using it in creative ways.
    Get ideas: This is what pinterest is FAMOUS for! Diy ideas
    Pictures of the library- Patrons know what to expect and get a visual of the area they might want to look for
    Pinterest can be used for fun! The whole point of social media is to interact with others so think about ways to involve your patrons.
    Promote library activities (add fliers)
    Our Pinterest Party will include instructions on use of Pinterest, refreshments and a craft to make from Pinterest, and promotion of our Library's boards.
  • Cook memorial: highlight what we’re reading, award book lists
    Fullerton: new books, library card design contest
    Kenton: Subject guides ex. School & Homeschool Teacher Resources, booklists- links to ebooks and catalog records
    Oakland: Page focused on one area (YA); Reader’s Advisory
    Tons of libraries/librarians on Pinterest here are some examples of different types of libraries using it in different ways!
