Identifying rights-holders and applying open licensing as part of digital preservation

A key part of digital preservation is ensuring long-term access to archived materials. Without proper understanding of copyright and licensing, collection stewards can often fall at the last hurdle and find themselves unable to make their carefully archived digital material available for browsing and research. This workshop will give an overview of Irish and EU copyright law as it applies to digital material, introduce the open licences that are most commonly used for publishing digital collections, and give recommendations for the best ways to identify rights holders and get permissions to publish collections under open licences. The workshop will draw upon the digital collections published by DRI as part of the Archiving Reproductive Health project, which include material with a variety of different rights holders and permissions associated with it. Digital Archivist Clare Lanigan will lead the workshop, which will take the form of a presentation followed by a question and answer session.

'Digital Preservation of Reproductive Health Resources: Archiving the 8th' (Archiving Reproductive Health) is a project funded by Wellcome and implemented by the Digital Repository of Ireland, providing long-term preservation and access to the many at-risk archives generated by the grassroots women’s reproductive health movement in Ireland.
