“Current Trends in Public Domain Image Policies”


Tuesday February 14th, 2:00-3:30 pm E.S.T.

How accessible are  your "public domain" digital collections? Please join us for a conversation about the range of usage policies for public domain digital image collections. To what extent do new open access decisions reflect a shift in the way academic libraries and archives treat access to digital reproductions of public domain materials in our stewardship? Speakers from Cornell and Yale will talk about the recent open access policies at their institutions, and there will be a discussion and Q&A opportunity. Following the program, there will be IRIG updates and announcements.
