Presenter: Rachael G. Samberg, University of California, Berkeley

If you’re developing digital projects or have wondered how best to support researchers using copyrighted content from your collections, this webinar will teach you a workflow to consider copyright and other legal considerations when third party content is used in digital publishing projects or scholarship. It will also help you address related publishing and licensing questions once the project or scholarship is complete, and understand the flow of intellectual property rights.

November 3, 2017,  from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.                                                                                     Get Hands-On: Improving Descriptive Practices for Born-Digital Material in an Archival Context                                                                                                                         Instructors: Shira Peltzman, UCLA and Annalise Berdini, UCSD                                                       The University of California, Los Angeles

This workshop is designed to (1) give attendees a better understanding of the ways in which current descriptive standards (and therefore, practice) fail to adequately meet the unique challenges that born-digital material often presents, (2) provide attendees with a thorough overview of the UC Guidelines for Born-Digital Archival Description, and (3) through a series of hands-on exercises and instruction, equip participants with the skills necessary to improve their institution’s current descriptive practices for born-digital material. Attendees will leave  with the knowledge and resources necessary to confidently update their processing manuals so that the born-digital material is in their collections—even if unprocessed—is  more discoverable.

Register online here; deadline is October 20
