|PALMM Copyright Guidelines|
|What are the PALMM Copyright Guidelines?|
Original Web Pages
Original Web pages created for a PALMM project should carry a copyright statement at the bottom of the page:
(c) Copyright [year], [Name of University]
(c) Copyright 2000, University of South Florida
Public Domain Content
For retrospective digitization, if the source materials are in the public domain, copyright cannot be claimed in the digital reproductions.
Do not put a statement of copyright in the bibliographic record. However, a version statement is encouraged.
In MARC, use a 533 reproduction note in the format: |a Electronic reproduction. |b [Florida] : |c State University System of Florida, PALMM Project, |d [date]. |f ([Collection name]) |n Electronically reproduced by [University name] from a document held in the [Library name] at [University name], [city].
In Dublin Core, use a Rights element in the format: Electronic version created [date], [University name].
Materials Under Copyright
In MARC, indicate copyright status in the 533 subfield n and in a 540 note, for example:
533 |n Electronically reproduced by the [University name] with permission of the author [Author name].
540 |a [Author name] holds all rights to the original version and electronic reproduction of this work.
Copyrighted materials in PALMM projects
If the source document is under copyright and digitized with permission, you should include a statement of copyright and permissions that will display with the digital object as well as in the bibliographic description.
If the object is in a system that does not have a rights declaration feature, print out the statement of copyright and permissions that was negotiated with the rights holder. Digitize this, and include it as the first page of the digitized document.
