Copyright and Contracts: Moving Beyond Text in IRs
An ALCTS webcast.
As the content in institutional repositories expands to include media, data and other format types, concerns over copyright also swell. Moreover, with institutions using social media sites such as Flickr and YouTube to highlight the institution's intellectual output and collections, the contractual terms of these sites also need to be considered. This session allows attendees a chance to navigate the legal landscape of IRs with creative content, and intends to include time for audience Q&A.
This session provides insights into how the IR can be used to capture more than the scholarly and research output of the institution.
Who Should Attend
All those who have implemented, or are considering implementing, an institutional repository.
