Rights in the Digital Era (print)

As Harvard University Research Fellow Peter B. Hirtle notes in his introduction, "These modules are an important resource for all archivists who want to understand some of their legal obligations when providing access to archival materials. They provide a useful introduction to the law of copyright, privacy, publicity, and trademarks from an archival perspective."


About TRENDS IN ARCHIVES PRACTICE: This open-ended series by the Society of American Archivists features brief, authoritative treatments written and edited by top-level professionals that fill significant gaps in archival literature. The goal of this modular approach is to build agile, user-centered resources. Modules treat discrete topics relating to the practical management of archives and manuscript collections in the digital age. Select modules are clustered together by topic (as they are here) and are available in print or electronic format. Each module also is available separately in electronic format so that readers can mix and match modules that best satisfy their needs and interests. Stay on trend with TRENDS IN ARCHIVES PRACTICE!
