Rights in the Digital Era is the second installment in the series Trends in Archives Practice. It includes four timely modules:
Module 4: Understanding Copyright Law by Heather Briston Describes the main principles of copyright law and outlines strategies for addressing common issues, special topics, and digital projects.
Module 5: Balancing Access and Privacy in Manuscript Collections by Menzi L. Behrnd-Klodt Introduces basic access and privacy laws, concepts, definitions, and professional ethical standards affecting manuscript materials and private and family papers.
Module 6: Balancing Access and Privacy in the Records of Organizations by Menzi L. Behrnd-Klodt Introduces basic access and privacy laws, concepts, definitions, and professional ethical standards affecting the management of records created by organizations, businesses, agencies, and other entities.
Module 7: Managing Rights andPermissions by Aprille C. McKay Provides practical guidance to help archivists transfer, clear, manage, and track rights information in analog and digital archives.
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!
