Thursday, March 27, 2008
Libraries are making innovative use of their local treasures. The Library of Congress is sharing a sampling of its rich collection on Flickr, as well continuing to make its own American Memory site a must visit. If your library has been digitizing some of its treasures to put online, stop into this webcast for a concrete, understandable approach to understanding the copyright issues critical to your project.
Spend an hour of prevention watching this webcast, and minimize the chances of lengthy legal battles in the future. This webcast is recommended for all libraries participating in the Local History Digital Resources Program (LHDRP).
Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
