The easy availability of art and cultural heritage images has paradoxically resulted in confusion when it comes to use and reproduction. Students, scholars, and curators often have very unrealistic expectations of Fair Use, and many turn to their librarians to interpret copyright law and facilitate licensing. However, image permissions for scholarly publishing pose a continuous challenge to even the most knowledgeable librarians. Open content resources are an attractive solution, but the wide variety of permitted uses can perpetuate confusion. The demand for high quality images for scholarly publishing remains high even still, and librarians, scholars, and publishers all play critical roles in the advocacy and use of image collections. This panel will explore how images for scholarly publications are made available and present tools that librarians can use to navigate the murky waters of image ownership. 

The Indianapolis Museum of Art’s image licensing model actively supports students, researchers, and scholars, by not charging reproduction fees for study, presentation, or scholarly publication. Anne Young will review this model and the external image resources with which the IMA has partnered to promote access to its collection images.

Image rights and reproductions for both print and digital art books remain a primary concern for scholars and publishers alike. Yale University Press recently led a Mellon-funded grant to investigate models for digital scholarly monographs. Patricia Fidler will summarize Yale University Press's past work and discuss future steps.

Elizabeth Townsend Gard will talk about The Durationator, a software tool that determines the copyright status of any work anywhere in the world. Her presentation will feature a demonstration of the Durationator and a discussion of how this tool can impact a museum’s ability to share images of their collections online.
