Copyright Metadata

Karen Coyle has written an article for First Monday articulating her ideas concerning the creation of metadata for copyright information for digital objects. At this point, libraries usually provide rights information. However, she makes a good case that we should provide as much copyright information as possible -- at least enough for our patrons to determine how they can proceed if they want to use the object. Good paper and good idea. [from LibraryLaw Blog]
