Copyright Review Management System - IMLS National Leadership Grant In 2008, the University of Michigan Library was awarded a National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to create a Copyright Review Management System (CRMS). https://www.lib.umich.edu/imls-national- leadership-grant-crms
CRMS The purpose of the project is to increase the reliability of copyright status determinations of books published in the United States from 1923 to 1963 in the HathiTrust Digital Library, and to help create a point of collaboration with other institutions. https://www.lib.umich.edu/imls-national- leadership-grant-crms
CRMS As of November 1, 2011, 170,174 volumes have been reviewed for copyright status. Of those volumes, almost 87,000 volumes (approximately 51%) have been determined to be in the public domain and are now available as full text in the HathiTrust Digital Library. https://www.lib.umich.edu/imls-national- leadership-grant-crms
Expanding CRMS CRMS grant ended December 2011 Still a substantial body of works to examine International works remained
Expanding CRMS: Solution Submit an IMLS National Leadership Grant proposal to do 2 things: Continue the CRMS project Expand the CRMS project into international works
Second CRMS Grant Awarded by IMLS to continue US deteminations and to expand into international determinations Focuses on identifying and recruiting partners to work with us
Scope 3 year grant Goal is to finish the current CRMS-US reviews Finish reviewing the 170,000 Australian, Canadian, and British books in our system.
Participation Fourteen active participants Many supporting institutions
Project Overview While continuing to review US works published from , we will expand into international works published from To assist in this, we are developing training tools and a review system to facilitate reliable and efficient reviewing
Project Goals Finish the US reviews Finish the 170,000 international reviews Develop national and international partners Produce a review system and methodological approach that others can adapt and adopt
Specifics: Review Process Using jurisdiction specific review tools, identify the death date of the author(s) of a given work Append that date to the catalog record for each work published by the author
Specifics: Review Process Identify country of publication Search the work for “inserts,” that is, content by another author that may still be under copyright protection If the death date of the author is outside the term of years for a given publication then append a PD-(JD) note to the record
Complications: Term Calculation Terms of protection are not calculated uniformly Many works will be PD-US but not PD in the country of origin and vice-versa We do not currently have the capacity to make a work available in the country of origin and not the US, so such works will remain closed
Conclusions Vast body of public domain works in our collections; we just don't know what they are Mass scale determinations require efficient review processes Multi-institution participation increased visibility, legitimacy, and effectiveness of the project
