Managing intellectual property rights is an important aspect of collections management. In this bitesize session we will review the Spectrum Rights management procedure, which can help your museum manage and document information about rights identified in your collection, looking at policy considerations and implementation.

There will be opportunities to ask questions during the session as well as join discussions with other attendees.

Before the session:

  • Think about how you do things in your museum, referring to your relevant in-house policy and procedure if you have access to them. You might also find it useful to have these available to refer to during the session

Who should attend?

Those involved in documentation related to rights management.

What will you learn?

By the end of the session, delegates will:

  • Understand how the Spectrum Rights management procedure can be used as a framework for managing information related to rights in your collection, and for developing an in-house policy for rights management
  • Know where to find more information and guidance
