Items found within the Atla Digital Library are intended to be used for noncommercial educational and research purposes. To that end, participants in the Atla Digital Library have sole responsibility to ensure that the items they contribute are either free of any copyright or other restrictions that would prohibit their display or that they have secured necessary permissions from the copyright holders to digitize and display the contributed items. To consistently and clearly communicate copyright status to Digital Library users, items found therein include a rights statement. The preferred standard of the Digital Library are statements included in the RightsStatements.org schema or an appropriate Creative Commons license.
During this session, attendees will receive an overview of the copyright issues around digitized collections as well as how to select an appropriate rights statement from either RightsStatements.org or Creative Commons that best reflects the current status of the items whose metadata they have opted to include in the Digital Library.
