Opening access to works in the public domain at Yale University

A session at MCN 2012

  • Melissa Gold Fournier
  • Chris Edwards

Saturday 10th November, 2012

10:30am to 12:00pm (PST)

In May 2011, Yale announced a groundbreaking new policy on open access to digital representations of works in the public domain. Yale’s policy represents a departure from preceding efforts in that no license is required for, nor any limitations imposed upon, the use of digital images of works in the public domain. This panel will examine how Yale arrived at the current policy, including the institutional climate, the collaboration between collections across the University - from museum to library and archive collections - that gave rise to the policy, as well as the boons and challenges of implementing the policy since its inception.
