The Digital Public Library of America’s Public Library Partnerships Project (PLPP), funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, worked with existing DPLA Service Hubs to provide digital skills training for public librarians and connect them sustainably with state and regional resources for digitizing, describing, and exhibiting their cultural heritage content.
In this project, DPLA worked with state and regional Hubs Digital Commonwealth, Digital Library of Georgia, Minnesota Digital Library, Montana Memory Project, and Mountain West Digital Library to write and iterate a workshop curriculum based on documented best practices. This curriculum is available in a self-guided version intended for digitization beginners. Please feel free to share, reuse, and adapt.
The Fair Use Index tracks a variety of judicial decisions to help both lawyers and non-lawyers better understand the types of uses courts have previously determined to be fair—or not fair. The decisions span multiple federal jurisdictions, including the U.S. Supreme Court, circuit courts of appeal, and district courts. Please note that while the Index incorporates a broad selection of cases, it does not include all judicial opinions on fair use. The Copyright Office will update and expand the Index periodically.
Here we list openly licensed datasets from several cultural institutions. All collections provide digital scans or photos that can be freely used without any restrictions. We first list the datasets that are completely in the Public Domain: below that we list the sets that are licensed under an open Creative Commons license (CC-BY/CC-BY-SA). The sets within each list have been ordered alphabetically. This is an ever expanding list so if you know of datasets that are not listed here, get in touch. Please also let us know if you have published, remixed or re-used the data in any way.
The question is this, with this change in focus how should academic libraries reflect these changes in priorities on their library website? It is after all the digital front door of the library and it sends out a message on what the library is about.
