Libraries, Orphan Works, and the Future of Copyright
by Nancy K. Herther
Harvard Library recently released a comprehensive literature review on orphan works and copyright in "an attempt to solve the legal complexities of the orphan works problem by identifying no-risk or low-risk ways to digitize and distribute orphan works under U.S. copyright law. The project's goal is to help clear the way for U.S. universities, libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions to digitize their orphan works and make the digital copies open access."
