Limited Capacity seats available

Making our holdings available for use is fundamental to the archival mission, yet many archives attempt to control further uses in various ways. When is it appropriate for an archives to limit reuse in order to protect its interests? This one-day workshop explores the issues involved in developing an institutional policy on reproduction and reuse of holdings in order to permit responsible reuse that is consistent with the law, ethical practice, financial needs, and core mission.

Upon completion of this workshop you’ll be able to:

  • Articulate reasons for controlling reuse;

  • Distinguish between copyright issues and other reasons for controlling reuse;

  • Learn about findings of empirical research into controls on reuse;

  • Understand the issues to be considered in developing an institutional policy on reproduction and reuse; and

  • Revise your institutional policies as appropriate for your situation.

Who should attend? Archivists (including managers and administrators) and staff who are responsible for working with and overseeing reproduction and permissions.

What should you already know? The instructor will assume a general understanding of copyright as it applies to archival material, such as Copyright: The Archivist and the Law or equivalent, plus experience with reprographic services, policies, and procedures in an archival institution.

Attendance is limited to 35.
