Snapshot - Clarifying Copyright: Applying Rightsstatements.org to Legacy Digital Collections
This snapshot outlines the University of Miami Libraries’ project to evaluate the rights status of 52,000 digital items in the UM Digital Collections, which contained little rights-related information in their metadata. We undertook a systematic review of the collections and assigned rights categories based upon the recommended statements at Rightsstatements.org.
