CopyTalk: Rights statements

Fallen coffee cup

From Lotus Head

Avoid the heat and stay inside on August 4 for a free webinar on “Rightsstatements.org: Communicating Copyright Status through Metadata.”

Rightsstatements.org is a collaborative project of DPLA and Europeana to create a standard way of communicating the copyright status of works in digital collections. The project is built on the idea that accurate and clear rights statements are needed to help both organizations and users understand how they can use digital collections. This session, led by members of the working group that developed the statements, will address what Rightsstatements.org does, how it was created, and its first stages of adoption by digital libraries both in the US and abroad.

Speakers:

Emily Gore, Director of Content at DPLA and Right Statement Working Group Co-Chair

David Hansen, Clinical Assistant Professor & Faculty Research Librarian at UNC School of Law and Right Statement Working Group Member

Day/Time: Thursday, August 4 at 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific for our hour long free webinar.
