Tuesday, Nov 10, 2020
12:00pm – 12:00pm
Presented by Dave Rodriguez, Sarah McCleskey, Meghann Matwichuk, and Kenneth Crews
Section 108 provides libraries with important legal rights in ensuring long-term access to legacy audiovisual collections, but the issue of how to make preservation copies available to contemporary researchers is fraught with legal and logistical uncertainty. This session will survey the current legal landscape, scholarship, and media preservation initiatives (namely, the work of the Academic Libraries Video Trust) to better understand the totality of copyright considerations involved in this sort of project. All participants are invited to share knowledge, experiences, and perspectives to productively discuss these considerations in an open, inclusive, and supportive environment.
