California library folks are invited to participate in a free webcast this Thursday at noon. Others are welcome to view the webcast after it is archived.
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).
