How does copyright impact institutional access policies and use of our shared cultural heritage locally and internationally? The Cultural Institution Roundtable Event is a half-day discussion, organised by CREATe, the National Library of Scotland and i-Publishing Consultants to explore this essential question.
The web resource for the Digitising the Edwin Morgan Scrapbooks project was launched on Friday 20th January, the first major UK study to explore the concept of diligent search since the EU Orphan Works Directive and UK Orphan Works Licensing Scheme came into effect. The resource, found at www.digitisingmorgan.org, explains the obstacles in current copyright law which make the digitisation of cultural heritage collections so challenging and expensive. It was developed by the Project Officer Kerry Patterson, PI Professor Ronan Deazley (Queen’s University Belfast) and PhD student Victoria Stobo with Digital Resources Officer Peter Bennett and Data Specialist Jesus Rodriguez Perez.
CREATe organized two events on Friday 20th January 2017 to launch the Digitising the Edwin Morgan Scrapbooks Project: a free training event about digitising photographs and the launch of the web resource.
On Saturday 12th November, CREATe staff joined university colleagues to bring a range of social science research to visitors at Glasgow’s famous Barrowlands (Barras) market. As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences, the Barras Social was a day of exhibitions, games, music and family activities designed to show how research affects the public – and to allow visitors to interact directly with researchers. The university’s stalls could be found among the regular stalls in the indoor area of the market. CREATe was housed in a former blinds stall.
This weekend, CREATe staff will become market stallholders, as we bring our research to the Barras market in the east end of Glasgow. CREATe is taking part in in ‘The Barras Social’, a College initiative to celebrate the ESRC Festival of Social Science, bringing university research to a new environment. Reasearchers from across the College of Social Sciences will present their work on stalls across the famous Barrowlands Market, alongside the regular stallholders. Using the ‘Digitising the Edwin Morgan Scrapbooks’ project as a way to explores issues of authorship and ownership of copyright, visitors will be able to make their own scrapbooks on an interactive board and to take away, creating their own unique works and re-using works made by others.
