Responsibly providing access to copyrighted materials within
the digital environment is a challenge facing many institutions
with cultural heritage collections. With support from the
Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Pacific
Film Archive (PFA) is developing innovative ways of working
with copyrighted materials using our CineFiles
Film Document Image Database as a model and testbed. This
project, called “The CineFiles Image Database: A Model
for Working With Copyrighted Materials,” has resulted
in this "Copyright Resources Project website."
On this website, we present our Summary
of Project, Expected
and Results, and Final
Report to IMLS. This website also includes a Copyright
Toolbox containing digital rights management guidelines;
permissions and clearances procedures; information on copyright
legislation and fair use; and an in–depth list of websites,
books, classes, and articles on copyright–related issues.
The CineFiles Film Document Image Database is a project of
the Pacific Film Archive Library, a department of the University
of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
This project has been supported in part by grants from the
National Endowment for the Humanities; the U.S. Institute
of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the
Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California
by the State Librarian; and the Packard Humanities Institute,
as well as by individual donors.
Image Database: A Model for Working With Copyrighted Materials
was made possible through grant funding from the
Institute of Museum and Library Services.
