Whether you’re using, creating, or providing access to digital resources you need to have a practical understanding of the relevant legal and licensing issues that might arise.  This no-nonsense guide provides easy-to-follow and pragmatic solutions to working with everything from e-journals and repositories to databases and image collections from an expert in the field. Case studies drawn from across the globe and from every type of institution illustrate relevant real-world problems and answers, while flowcharts and checklists provide visual reminders of key points. A handy glossary also offers relevant explanations of legal terms. Focusing on UK and EU law, the key topics covered include:

  • Intellectual property rights and digital content
  • An overview of licensing
  • Digital content and licensing workflow
  • Research outputs and open access
  • Dealing with orphan works and risk management
  • Creating and using open educational resources
  • Using and understanding creative commons licenses
  • Managing rights and permissions
  • Negotiating permissions

This is an invaluable toolkit for information professionals using, creating or providing access to digitized materials whether in academic, public or special libraries, archives or museums.  It is also an essential guide for academics, learning technologists, and researchers working with digital content. It provides an ideal introduction for LIS students and academics who want to get to grips with the law regarding digital resources.
