The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) recently launched rightsstatements.org, a global approach to describing standardized rights information that can be applied to all types of digital collections to clarify their copyright status. The Minnesota Digital Library (MDL) is one of the leaders nationally in adopting these new statements and facilitating their application to our digital collection, Minnesota Reflections. The session will offer an overview of the twelve DPLA rights statements, provide examples of applying rights statements to content, and explain the difference between rightsstatements.org and Creative Commons licensing. We'll wrap up by sharing some lessons learned from a collaborative pilot project undertaken by a team of MDL/University of Minnesota staff and five of our contributors to implement rightstatements.org in Minnesota Reflections.
