Idea Journal #2 – Thoughts after turning Topic

I’ve turned in my topic paper early it seems, but I feel i need to refine the topic a bit more. I’m afraid that I’m trying to do too much with the paper. Is 3000 words enough to discuss both the issues of access and collecting in institutional repositories. Let’s break down the main issues.

Access

  • copyright of digitized collections
  • how far will fair use take you with a collection that has questionable copyright
  • what do donor agrees do to restrict access to digitized collections
  • what are concerns about unrestricted access to collections

Collecting

  • providing rights to owners
  • Who owns university intellectual property
  • Open access
  • utilizing creative commons effectively
