METRO Workshop — Navigating Copyright for Digital Projects

March 2010
Navigating Copyright Waters for Your Digital Projects
For librarians and archivists in the “Digital Age,” understanding how copyright law applies to new technology is essential. During this interactive workshop, instructor Linda Tadic (NYU) will teach participants how to responsibly manage intellectual property rights for digital collections. Topics will also include how to analyze underlying and third party rights, and the use of metadata in conducting legal due diligence.

Linda Tadic consults and lectures in the areas of digital asset management, audiovisual and digital preservation, and metadata. She is 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 the positions of Manager of the Digital Library at Home Box Office (HBO), and Director of the Media Archives and Peabody Awards Collection at the University of Georgia. She is the past Director of Operations for ARTstor.
