University of Michigan Library spotlighted on Creative Commons Blog

February 19, 2009

The Creative Commons blog has a great interview with Molly Kleinman, our Copyright Specialist.

Over the past year, the University of Michigan Library has shown itself to be particularly sensible in regards to open content licensing, the public domain, and issues of copyright in the digital age. The U-M Library has integrated public domain book machines, adopted CC licensing for their content, and independently had their Copyright Specialist, Molly Kleinman, articulate the importance of proper attribution in using CC licenses. We recently caught up with Molly to learn more about these efforts - primarily how they came to be and the results they have yielded - as well as discuss CC’s place in educational institutions at large and how CC and Fair Use interact in the academic sphere.

I'm glad to see an advancement in the use of open source and more importantly, the creative commons license. Nice to see reputable educational institutes taking notice and putting these licenses to work.
