Open Board & Committee Calls

Board  /  Committees  /  Open Board & Committee Calls

Open Board and Board Committee calls are quarterly open conference calls held by DPLA’s Board of Directors and its two committees (Governance and Finance). Details about these calls, including a schedule of all upcoming calls and notes from previous calls, can be found below.

Open Committee calls are a monthly series of open conference calls, separate from the open Board calls, focused on topics related to our operational committees. These calls occur on the first Wednesday of every month at 2:00 PM Eastern. The schedule of upcoming open committee calls is available below.


Open Board and Board Committee Calls (Quarterly)

The Board of Directors holds an open conference call on the 15th of September, December, March, and June at 3:00 PM Eastern, except when that date falls on a weekend. The board will strive to host at least one in-person meeting per year (or video-enabled web conference for those who can’t make it). Additionally, the Board’s Governance and Finance Committees convene open calls every other month on a rotating basis.

These calls are open to the public, as per DPLA’s open meetings guidelines. Agendas are posted at least one week in advance of the call on this page, the blog, and the news list. Notes are published via those same channels within two weeks after each call; notes from past calls can be found below.

Libraries and Copyright: Big Wins in 2014 and Big Challenges Ahead for 2015

Libraries and Copyright: Big Wins in 2014 and Big Challenges Ahead for 2015

A guest post from DPLA Legal Committee member, Dave Hansen, UNC Chapel Hill Law

In terms of copyright, 2014 was a big year for libraries. The highlights were the release of decisions in two major copyright cases on appeal, largely in favor of library uses and affirming the applicability of fair use to certain aspects of digitization. Other developments, such as the release of a new code of best practices in fair use of collections containing orphan works, have created opportunities for libraries and other memory institutions to make further progress on addressing copyright obstacles to digital access to their collections. Before the first open committee call of the year for the DPLA Legal Committee (which is later today at 2:00pm Eastern), now is a good time for a short recap what we’ve seen over the last year and what we can expect in 2015.
