Feedback form is now closed.
This session provides an update on the RightsStatements.org project and extensive look at its implementation at Hubs and contributing institutions across the DPLA Network. Updates on the RightsStatements.org project will include recent developments in the project's governance, sustainability, and growth. Panelists, representing a geographically diverse selection of rights standardization projects from digital collections across the DPLA Network, will compare and contrast how each approached the work and its challenges. Each featured organization differs in operating structures and content types held, making their approach different by necessity. Each is also at a different stage in the implementation process, providing attendees with an array of opportunities for education and inquiry. Panelists will discuss metadata choices, development of training, and engagement with contributors. This session is open at all who would like to learn more about rights standardization projects from those who are on the front lines of implementing them.
