Cole Live and Uncut: Digitization Workshop

This week I will be presenting on "Digitization," with the Director of Copyright Services, and the Digitization and Conservation Services Director, from the Cornell University Library.

We'll use Cornell's Hip-Hop Collection, an archive of "hundreds of party and event flyers ca. 1977-1985; thousands of early vinyl recordings, cassettes and CDs; film and video; record label press packets and publicity; black books, photographs, magazines, books, clothing, and more" as an example of how to tackle the legal concerns and practical challenges of partially digitizing a large project.

Hip-hop has challenged copyright (among other things) from its inception, so with a bit of luck, this workshop will quickly get meta.
