Feedback form is now closed.
Many special collections place restrictions on how patrons may use copies of their holdings, such as requiring permission or publication fees. However, some restrictions go beyond what U.S. copyright law calls for, placing extra burdens on researchers who want to produce new knowledge. The moderators present findings from their recent study on use policies in academic special collections and the panelists discuss their policies and the effects of lower use restrictions. There will be time for audience questions.
