LYRASIS Class: Introduction to Copyright for Digitization
October 29 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Are you planning for a digitization project? Whether you are new to digitization or looking to expand your efforts, you may be considering the copyright issues and implications for your project. What is protected by copyright? What isn’t? Do you have the rights to put materials online? Can you get permission or are items in the public domain? This two hour live online class will cover the basics of copyright law and will include information about public domain, fair use, due diligence, the permissions process and orphan works.
