Abstract

The Library, archive, cultural and educational sectors are likely to face many more years of copyright uncertainty and disconnect between copyright laws and norms. Legislative changes may narrow what has been a widening gap between the legal and the technologically possible, but evolving copyright norms are increasingly setting the boundaries of what is possible and prudent at a time when black letter law is struggling to keep pace with change.

Abstract

In 2013, the University of Melbourne offered its first MOOCs via Coursera. The technology enabled seven courses taught by academic staff from different disciplines to be delivered to anyone with an internet connection. The Library was included as part of the MOOCs development team from the start, collaborating with teaching staff through the hectic development phase, forging positive relationships with learning designers and production staff. This paper presents a case study that demonstrates the contribution that the Library has made to MOOCs@Melbourne.

Abstract

The Copyright Amendment (Digital Agenda) Act 2000 introduced provisions aimed at updating copyright legislation to accord with the digital environment. For libraries, the Act extended the existing library and archives exceptions to enable libraries to utilize digital technology in providing access to information. A review of the Digital Agenda Act is currently underway to assess how the Act has performed against its original objectives. This paper explores the most controversial and important issues for libraries in the review.

Abstract

Archiving for permanent retention is facing some major challenges as we move into the next millennium. These include issues relating to selection from a burgeoning mass of information being produced in a wide range of formats; issues relating to media longevity and equipment obsolescence; migrating information across formats; the commercialisation of activities; the growing impact of IT requirements and the complexity of copyright and other rights in digital materials.

Abstract

In 2003, the Australian War Memorial commenced a project to digitise the notebooks and diaries of C.E.W. Bean for preservation and with the intent to make the images publicly available via the website. The digitisation of the records was completed in 2004, but the project ground to a halt when the copyright of this material was examined more closely and the records were found be a complex mixture of copyright rather than Commonwealth copyright. For the Memorial, this project represents our first venture into publishing a large complex collection of private records online and also our pilot for publishing orphan works using s200AB of the Copyright Act.

Abstract

In December 2009, the Australian Copyright Act was amended to introduce a new exception for cultural institutions: Section 200AB. This Section adopts a far more open-ended drafting style than the existing libraries and archives provisions, and was introduced with the intention of capturing some of the benefits of a flexible exception. However, the operation of Section 200AB has been a matter of debate, because of uncertainties in its application. The aim of this paper is to explore how Section 200AB can become a meaningful part of copyright management. The paper includes discussions of fieldwork with US institutions about fair-use practice, which may provide guidance to Australian counterparts.

Abstract

The Internet and new technologies have ushered in a seemingly unlimited array of possibilities for access to knowledge, creativity, and public participation. Elected officials have been slow to develop the law and policy frameworks to match the Internet's potential, however, opting instead for a "hands-off approach". This presentation will highlight the role that the Internet is playing for new creativity and knowledge sharing, while identifying a forward-looking, hands-on policy approach.

Abstract

Almost a year after its introduction, many questions remain about the scope and interpretation of section 200AB of the Copyright Act 1968: the new 'flexible' exception for educational and cultural institutions. Unlike existing exceptions, section 200AB is drafted using a more open-ended approach, and may therefore apply to a range of activities undertaken for administrative, preservation and access purposes. But how open-ended will the exception be in practice? This presentation discusses this question, including with reference to preliminary results of a PhD project considering cultural institution law and practice in the United States and Canada, which may help identify important lessons for Australia.

Abstract

Intellectual Property training is seen to be the domain of the legal profession. This is entirely appropriate if you believe that the only people who invent or create are scientists in laboratories supported by multinationals who take out patents to protect the developments and commercialise the outputs. This paper explores the options open to Technical and Further Education (TAFE) Libraries in relation to copyright education. Utilising the Information Literacy Guidelines places a TAFE library in a unique position to provide their institution's copyright training across a wide range of subjects in a balanced compliant manner.

Abstract

The Universal Digital Library epitomises international collaboration with partners from USA, China, Egypt and Australia spanning academia, Government and religious institutions as stakeholders. Nearly 600,000 books have been scanned so far and most of them are available for free browsing.

Discuss the Indian Language Technology Research that was stimulated by the vast information base made available by the UDL project. The efforts to connect the users to content using mobile vans, Internet based dissemination and the personalised Digital collections are compared. The talk concludes with the discussion on the issue of copyright and presents a novel idea of a “Consortium for Compensating for Creating Contents” – the FourCs.
