Theme: Copyright and Access to Digital Content
This session will focus on access to material in digital format i.e. born digital or material that has been retro-digitised. Access to electronic resources is primarily via a licence. Licences are governed by contract law, rather than copyright law. We will look at the relationship between contract and copyright law and will examine popular ways to create access to digital content through open content models e.g. Open Access and Creative Commons licences. We will also discuss the use of free online resources.
