Digital NZ: 'Copyright terms and the public domain in New Zealand'
Copyright terms and the public domain in New Zealand
Just released from DigitalNZ , a new resource on the NZ public domain available for download from their Make it Digital site. 'Copyright terms and the public domain in New Zealand' provides guidance on New Zealand copyright terms and material currently in the New Zealand public domain, here
It is designed to complement their Make it Digital Guide on Enabling Use and Re-use of digital content, here
Make it Digital Scorecard
DigitalNZ also released the Make it Digital Scorecard in late June. The scorecard is a decision making tool for organisations wanting to select and prioritise content for digitisation to improve access. Available, here
Looking for playmates
DNZ are also keen to hear from anyone interested in being part of a small case study on the use of the scorecard for making digitisation decisions.
