A Virtual Copyright Education Center for Libraries, Archives and Museums

No sessions are currently scheduled for this event. To request a new session, please contact membersupport@lyrasis.org


This class will talk about the findings of the first phase of research in developing an online education and professional development space for professionals in libraries, archives and museums so as to empower them to manage copyright issues more comprehensively within their institutions. Rights literacy leads to an expansion in the capacity to provide access to collections as well as promotes the ethics of scholarship. This class will examine the connections to both concepts and then summarize the findings and next steps as determined in our research that supports how to deliver and on what basis to deliver and host copyright management professional development.
