Support for SAA IP Working Group

February 11th, 2008 by Merrilee

(This went out on RLG Announce earlier today. You can subscribe to RLG Announce if you are an RLG Programs Partner.)

I’m pleased to report that RLG Programs is giving support to the Society of American Archivists Intellectual Property Working Group. We’ll be providing funding for an Orphaned Works Investigation Best Practices Retreat, which will take place in March. The retreat will enable intellectual property experts from the archival community to meet face-to-face to develop best practices for reasonable investigation of orphaned works in archives. I’ll be attending the meeting, and I’m very excited at the prospect of being able to establish best practices that will lead to greater use of archival materials.
