10:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Increased user demand for online content and wider acceptance of
digitization as a preservation action requires librarians, archivists,
curators, and artists to become familiar with how copyright law intersects
with their digital project planning.

This workshop approaches copyright from the collections and project
management perspective. An overview of copyright law and how to analyze
underlying or third-party rights in textual, visual, audio and moving image
content will be provided. Metadata that can be captured as part of the legal
due diligence process will be described in context, so the purpose of the
metadata is clear. We will perform exercises with common digital project

Linda Tadic consults and lectures in the areas of digital asset management,
audiovisual and digital preservation, and metadata. She is Executive
Director of the Audiovisual Archive Network (, and an
adjunct professor in New York University's Moving Image Archiving and
Preservation graduate degree program, teaching two core courses: Collection
Management, and Access to Moving Image Collections.

Ms. Tadic's over 25 years experience working with and managing audiovisual,
digital and broadcasting collections includes positions of Manager of the
Digital Library at Home Box Office (HBO), and Director of the Media Archives
and Peabody Awards Collection at University of Georgia. She is past Director
of Operations for ARTstor.
