The Folk Heritage Collections in Crisis conference
Philosophische Fakultät I
The Folk Heritage Collections in Crisis conference pursued three themes: access, preservation, and intellectual property. The 100 invited participants were mainly middle-aged, established, upper-echelon professionals. What is interesting is how much agreement there was on issues like digital preservation and the use of encoded archival description. Participants saw the US copyright law as a barrier which neither upheld the rights of people of non-European origin, nor facilitated the free movement of information.
