Question & Answers: Can My Library Scan and Post Unpublished Photographs from its Local History Files?

Can My Library Scan and Post Unpublished Photographs from its Local History Files? - An interview with Ricky Erway and Merrilee Proffitt

Interviewed by Mary Minow, Executive Editor of the Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Website

Ricky Erway and Merrliee Proffitt are both Senior Program Officers with OCLC Research.

Here is One of Several Questions and Answers:

Minow: What prompted you to develop the Well-Intentioned Practice Document for libraries and archives?

Proffitt: This is a follow-up to a previous activity we did with institutions to encourage them to digitize more from special collections, and do it at scale. Our original exercise (which resulted in a paper called Shifting Gears) was aimed at getting institutions to refocus from digitizing a few collection high points, to digitizing entire collections, and to do it at scale. To focus more on access and less on preservation. For those institutions who held more modern collections, concern about rights was big stumbling block.

Erway:We had ruled rights issues off-topic for that activity, but now it was time to look at the issue of rights and to do it from a risk management perspective. I'd like to be clear that the Well-intentioned Practice document was drafted with the help of an advisory group and the speakers of the event you mentioned and had lots of review and reworking by others during and after the event. It is not an OCLC document. It is of, by, and for the community.
