UKAD forum 2014: Knowing your rights – More than just data standards: what are the rights challenges for digitisation and online access to archive collections?

Ronan Deazley draws on examples of large-scale archive digitisation initiatives to discuss copyright compliance and risk management when making archive material available online.

The United Kingdom Archives Discovery (UKAD) network is a collaborative group of archives and other information professionals, of which The National Archives is part, who are working towards opening up data in order to promote the use of archives.

The forum is an opportunity for archivists and information professionals to hear and share some of the latest thinking around online access to archives and archives data and share ideas around making archives more accessible through online development.

Ronan Deazley is Professor of Copyright Law at the University of Glasgow, a qualified archivist, and the Founding Director of CREATe, the RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy.
