Copyright - Identifying & Addressing Issues for Digitization: 2-Part Webinar (06/8 and 06/15/17) 

IMPORTANT: This is a 2-part webinar that meets on Thursdays, June 8th and June 15th, from 10 am - 12 noon each day. You will register once to attend both sessions.

Digitizing Specific Collections and Archives

The ability to digitize entire subsets of collections allows libraries, museums, and similar entities to fulfill their missions to a degree well beyond any they have previously been able to do.  Mass digitization provides a powerful tool both to preserve valuable collections and to share unique and difficult-to-obtain materials with interested audiences outside of the facility in which they physically reside.  Many of these collections, however, contain works still protected by copyright.

In this interactive series, you will learn to identify, assess, and address the challenges copyright presents to mass digitization projects, including evaluating fair use in such situations, dealing with orphan works, assessing risk, and obtaining permission.
