Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and event hosted by the Archives Association of British Columbia (AABC). How do you manage photographs when you cannot determine who owned them or who holds copyright over them or you don’t know anything about the content of the photograph itself. Do you have a policy or procedures or standard practices? How do you balance the issues of ownership and copyright with making them accessible for research and display? Do you digitize them anyway? Do you make them available on the Internet? I can’t wait to find out what others are doing! How about you? This interactive panel discussion engages these important questions in the archival profession today.
