Course Description (1 day, .75 CEUs, 5 ARCs)

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?

In this one-day workshop you’ll explore the issues involved in developing an institutional policy on reproduction and reuse of holdings so that you can permit responsible reuse that is consistent with the law, ethical practice, your institution’s financial needs, and its 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 institutional policies as appropriate for particular situations.

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

Knowledge assumed for this course:
A general understanding of copyright as it applies to archival material, such as is offered in SAA’s Copyright: The Archivist and the Law or equivalent.

Attendance is limited to 35.
