Full Description
Increased user demand for online content and wider acceptance of digitization as a preservation action requires librarians and archivists to become familiar with how copyright law intersects with their digital project planning. This workshop approaches copyright from the collections and project management perspective. An overview of Section 108 and how to analyze underlying or third-party rights in textual, visual, audio, and moving image content will be discussed. Metadata that can be captured as part of the legal due diligence process will be described in context so the purpose of the metadata is clear. We will perform exercises with common digital project scenarios.
 
Who should attend:
Librarians, archivists, and information professionals concerned with responsibly managing intellectual property rights for digital collections created and maintained by their institution or organization
 
By the end of this program, participants will:
• Be familiar with current copyright law as it relates to digital access and preservation projects
• Have a methodology to analyze underlying and third party rights for different media and format types
• Understand the use of metadata in conducting legal due diligence
