ASERL Friends:

I'm very pleased to announce a new webinar that we will offer in a few weeks, 
"Implementing RightsStatements.org at the University of Miami Libraries."  This 
webinar will provide an overview of efforts at the University of Miami 
Libraries (UML) to implement the RightsStatements.org recommendations for new 
and legacy materials that have been digitized for online access in the UM 
Digital Collection. Laura Capell and Elliot Williams will explain their 
rationale for adopting the RightsStatements.org recommendations, and go into 
detail about the systematic review conducted on 52,000 legacy digital items 
that contained little rights-related information in their metadata. They will 
explain their workflows for updating the metadata to reflect the updated rights 
information, and talk about the decision matrix they developed to help ensure 
consistency. They will also cover how UML is moving forward with rights 
assessment for new digital projects. Lastly, Capell and Williams will also 
discuss some of the challenges they encountered as librarians who did not have 
extensive backgrounds in copyright, and they will share some helpful tricks 
learned along the way.
