Open access and copyright issues can dominate discussions addressing the reuse of digital resources. Metadata reuse has introduced a host of rights questions and challenges. Metadata rights were explored during the course INLS 720: Metadata Architectures and Applications this past fall as part of a student presentation. Our meeting will cover copyright in the context of metadata, plus two case studies (one examining Duke University Press and the other examining open bibliographic data). The presentation wrap up with a series of questions for discussion.
