Copyright Futures for the Humanities


The Digital Humanities Lab, Herter Hall 19G

Digital humanities work raises questions around digitization, search, and non-consumptive uses of texts, as well as distribution and access. But traditional humanities work is also confronting copyright questions, simply in terms of publishing, using, and accessing humanities research. This discussion, facilitated by Laura Quilter, UMass Copyright and Information Policy Librarian, will address the issues raised in copyright litigation, particularly the Authors Guild v. HathiTrust case and the "digital humanities" amicus brief, and consider the possible Open Access future presented by the Open Library of Humanities and other initiatives. 

If you would like to attend this event, please RSVP to by Monday, March 4.

Please forward this announcement to any faculty, staff, or grad students who might be interested in attending this event -- We hope to see you there!
