The DPLA Board of Directors held their monthly call yesterday.
The meeting included a discussion of a new draft of the proposed DPLA metadata policy. This draft was developed by the Berkman Center Cyberlaw Clinic and DPLA Secretariat.
We’ve embedded the full text draft policy below. You can access it here as a MS Word document.
A proposed metadata policy was also discussed during the January meeting.
Yesterday’s meeting notes include comments about the proposed metadata policy from members of the DPLA. Most of the comments and discussion focused on consistency of a DPLA policy with Europeana’s metadata policy, if a DPLA policy could account for “disparate copyright systems in other countries” and if the was consistent with its grants, and “whether the policy would satisfy managers of large metadata-holding institutions who are interested in contributing metadata to the DPLA.” Use of a CCo license was also discussed.
You can read highlights from the metadata discussion on page 2-3 of the complete meeting notes.
