Led by Lynda Clark, Image Library Manager at the Fitzwilliam Museum, this course is ideal for staff or volunteers who want to learn the essentials of copyright and how to follow best practice within their organisation, and anyone who uses copyrighted material in their role.
The course will focus on understanding the basics of copyright; developing a copyright policy for your institution; exploiting your collections; clearing permissions and risk management, and copyright in the digital age.
An overview of recent developments in copyright legislation will also be included, along with a consideration of how copyright issues can be addressed and managed within social networking and new media.
By the end of the course participants will:
- have a good understanding of the different types and duration of copyright, and why and when to clear copyright.
- have the tools to develop an institutional copyright policy and to carry out a rights audit for their organisation.
- understand how to exploit their collections and exercise due diligence when clearing permission from rights holders.
Case studies from individuals are welcome and will form part of an open discussion.
Morning refreshments will be available, but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
This course is also running on 22nd October 2014.
