Can We Do That?: Intellectual Property Rights and Visual Media, a Visual Resources Association Foundation Regional Workshop, will be held on Thursday March 30, 2017 at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) and co-hosted by the University of Oregon Libraries. We are fortunate to have as our workshop instructor Cara Hirsch, former Associate General Counsel at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and former Deputy General Counsel at ArtStor. Cara brings vast experience to her instructor role, having supervised the rights review and clearance process for media collections in the Artstor Digital Library, a digital image resource that makes available to nonprofit institutions over 1.7 million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences. We are certain that cultural heritage professionals, the information and educational communities, and anyone interested in visual culture will benefit from this experience, and for those of you who also plan to attend Online Northwest on Friday, March 31, joining us for Can We Do That? represents a unique opportunity to make a long weekend packed with high-level programming!
