I am lucky enough to have another week in the Manuscript Reading room of the Library of Congress buried in the ARL archive once again. I am still working my way through the 64 boxes of unprocessed materials, but it is going reasonably quickly this time, since most boxes don’t have anything about copyright in them or cover the period after the passage of the 1976 Act. It is only Tuesday and I have already passed the half way mark on the final collection:
- The early study of photocopying practice and the report of the Joint Committee in 1961
- The Joint Committee’s acceptance of Fisher’s strategy.
- Rutherford Roger’s testimony before the House Subcommittee in 1965.
- The joint ALA/ARL proposed amendment to S597 in 1969
- Joint ALA/ARL proposed amendment to §108 (d) in S1361 and Philip Brown and Stephen McCarthy’s testimony on 7/31/73.
- The ARL response to §108 (g) (2) in 1974.
