Event description

Description

Feeling confused about copyright? As more of our cultural heritage is digitized and made accessible online by collecting institutions, users are encountering a bewildering variety of information about the rights in digital objects. Recognizing the need to standardize this information, DPLA and Europeana have developed a set of twelve rights statements that are simple, descriptive, and flexible. These statements can be found at RightsStatements.org.

This workshop explores copyright and how to apply the correct rights statements to your collections. With librarians, archivists, and museum professionals in mind, presenter Greg Cram will discuss copyright basics, public domain, works for hire, copyright duration, licenses and contracts, Creative Commons, fair use, and dealing with orphan works. Participants will apply the rights statements to objects found in typical collections such as books, manuscripts, commercial photographs, family papers and snapshots, yearbooks, maps, and more.

Lunch will be provided in the Indiana State Library.
