Information Access Seminar

Transitions of Stewardship

Friday, January 31, 2014
3:10 pm to 5:10 pm
Clifford Lynch

This presentation and discussion continues research from last semester on various processes for the transfer of stewardship responsibility for scholarly and cultural materials. Issues to be considered include the public interest in the responsible stewardship of these kinds of materials and how that might be protected; the rapidly-developing technical capabilities to largely separate the scholarly and "cultural treasure" aspects of various kinds of works, and trends that may be moving communities towards more frequent transitions of stewardship of materials.
