You'll look at the basic text of relevant federal statutes and significant case law as well as examine case studies. A very brief review of copyright essentials will be provided to ground the discussion. The focus of the day will be on how to think through and identify options for resolving the most commonly encountered copyright issues.

    The 2018 Northwest Archivists Annual Meeting will take place April 25-27, 2018 in Warm Springs, Oregon. This will be the first conference in recent years held in a federally-recognized Tribal nation. This year’s conference theme, Stewarding Collections, Engaging Communities, speaks to the role of archives within the larger ecosystem of cultural resource management. On a broader level, the theme asks us to consider how we, as archivists, care for collections to the benefit of present and future generations.
