Feedback form is now closed.
In the past year, librarians at UC Merced and UC San Diego have successfully opened hundreds of UC copyright-owned publications for worldwide access in HathiTrust. They used HathiTrust’s Creative Commons Declaration Form (CCDF) to apply Creative Commons licenses to the volumes. Our talk will focus on how UC librarians can use the HathiTrust’s CCDF to open targeted sets of volumes for world wide access.

Emily Lin at UC Merced will discuss her project to open over 1,000 volumes of UC Agriculture and Natural Resource (UC ANR) publications. Amy Butros at UC San Diego will discuss her process to open over 500 volumes of Scripps Institution of Oceanography publications. Renata Ewing at CDL will discuss CDL’s role in supporting this work, including developing a generalized workflow and sharing strategies that UC librarians might to use to find and compile subsets of UC-rights held content from HathiTrust corpus that may be opened using the CCDF.
