Save the dates! We are hosting two workshops for those who want to learn more about standardized rights statements and their implementation this summer. The first, on Monday, July 22nd will be held at the Washburn Public Library in Minneapolis, and the second, on Thursday, August 15th, is at the Kathryn A. Martin Library at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Both are open to the public and are free of charge.
What will these workshops consist of? Each workshop will start with a morning training containing an overview of the standardized rights statements developed by the international collaborative rightsstatements.org, followed by examples of how to apply these statements to items in Minnesota Reflections. During the optional afternoon working session the opportunity will be available to actually apply statements to items you have in your collection. Adding these labels to your digital collections will improve usability and access for users, whether or not your organization contributes to Minnesota Reflections.
Want to participate in this opportunity to learn more about rights statements? Registration will open soon, so watch for updates!
