Interested in using standardized statements from RightsStatements.org, but don’t know where to begin? Looking for answers to digital collections copyright questions? Using statements that don’t quite fit your needs? The DPLA Rights Statements Working Group (RSWG) will overview their current projects--a rights resources portal site and an integrated rights curriculum. We’ll present tools and methods for successful statement implementation, and involve the audience in a lively discussion covering copyright, statement implementation, and what the RSWG can do for the community. Additionally, international RightsStatements.org group representatives will give updates on recent efforts, focus areas, and new members. This session will also be informed by data driven research from both a survey and in person interviews to articulate a roadmap for digital collection managers to navigate copyright challenges stemming from the adoption of standardized rights statements and licenses.
