Sep: Copyright Issues for Growing Digital Collections (ALCTS)

Wednesday, September 3, 2014
11 am Pacific | 12 Mountain | 1 pm Central | 2 pm Eastern

Presenter will share experiences working with a legal services department at an academic campus. After eighteen months of getting no signed copyrights transferred to the university from authors and copyright holders, she was able to convince the legal heads that what was really needed was a form in which authors and copyright holders would give them permission to digitize their works to share freely with the world, but retain their copyright. Once they instituted their own nonexclusive, royalty-free form, they were able to get permissions to grow their digital collections by more than eight hundred articles and books. Presenter will also cover how she located copyright holders and will share the types of permissions she was successful in obtaining, including heirs, government research authors, small publishing companies, and individual authors.
