Digital Projects Toolkit Part 2: Collection Development and Copyright is the second in a series of five short courses introducing the basics of cultural heritage digitization projects. This section includes issues to consider in selecting materials for digitization, determining copyright status and assigning rights statements.
This series was created by Recollection Wisconsin to help public library systems provide basic digitization education and support to their members. Course development was funded by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC). Support for Recollection Wisconsin is provided in part by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
