  • Copyright for Archivists

    Friday 1st March 2019 at The National Archives, Kew

    ARA South East Region

    The ARA South East regional committee warmly invites you to a day’s training on the subject of Copyright for Archivists, to be held at the National Archives, Kew, on Friday 1st March 2019. Training will be delivered by two leading experts in the field of copyright legislation, Naomi Korn and Tim Padfield. The day will be split into two complimentary sessions. In the morning Tim Padfield will provide an introduction/re-fresher on copyright with special reference to archives. In the afternoon Naomi Korn will deliver an interactive session looking at a wide-range of aspects of copyright which have a particular impact on those who work with archive collections, including orphan-works, risk management and due diligence.

    This is intended to be an informative, practical and interactive training session aimed at all those with an interest in copyright, regardless of their level of experience and knowledge of rights legislation. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion throughout the day, as well as networking with colleagues. Attendees will be invited to bring questions arising from their practice for discussion on the day and to contact the committee in advance if there are any particular areas they would like the speakers to cover. The day will contribute to competency A.5 in the ARA Continuing Professional Development scheme: understanding, interpreting and complying with legislation and/or regulation.

    About the speakers:

    Naomi Korn is one of the leading UK experts in copyright, data protection & GDPR, rights and licensing. She was chair of the Libraries and Archives Copyright Alliance (LACA) from 2013 – 2017. During this period, she led the reform of the UK’s copyright laws on behalf of the cultural heritage sector, resulting in new UK exceptions to copyright in 2014. Naomi was also a Trustee of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professional (CILIP) From 2015-17. She is a visiting lecturer at City University, University College London and Kingston University, and has run hundreds of workshops for charities, educational establishments, cultural heritage organisations and publishers.

    Tim Padfield started in archives as an Assistant Keeper of Public Records at the Public Record Office (now The National Archives) where he worked for his whole career, including in reader services, editorial, conservation and corporate planning. For ten years Tim was secretary of the Lord chancellor's Advisory Council on Public Records and for 15 years he was copyright officer, advising TNA and archivists around the country. The 6th edition of his book, Copyright for Archivists and Records Managers, is to be published later this year.
