I am having lunch today at the National Press Club for the Committee for Economic Development's Digitial Connections Council new report release "Harnessing Openness to Improve Research, Teaching, and Learning in Higher Education."
I can't wait to see what this special interest group has to say about open access in higher education, and how it will benefit me as an A/V Archivist, especially when it comes to the copyright issues for recordings of performaces of copyrighted works. (That's going to be my biggest obstacle with the School of Music audio recordings.)
It was more about openness in digital repositories and creative commons instead of digital and electronic copyright issues in general. Still very cool, and got me thinking about the development of CUA's Institutional Repository!
