Help people decide how they can use your digital items

Everyone in the NJ/DE cultural heritage community is welcome to participate in our next Copyright Clinic, scheduled for Friday, August 23 at 2:00 pm EST

The first 45 minutes or so will be a general overview and refresher about copyright, particularly as it applies to digital collections. Paige Morgan, Digital Publishing and Copyright Librarian, and Head of Digital Initiatives & Preservation at the University of Delaware, demystifies rights statements to give you a copyright confidence boost. 

During the second 45 minutes, will we workshop assessing and assigning rights statements to examples of items from current hub contributors. Improving accuracy of rights statements in your collections helps DPLA users know whether and how they can reuse items they discover. Feel free to bring specific questions or just sit in to learn more!
