INTRODUCTION

"A signature is a small price to pay for immortality."

– One author's response when asked to sign a CineFiles permissions form.

Responsibly providing access to copyrighted materials within the digital environment is a challenge facing many institutions with cultural heritage collections. With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Pacific Film Archive (PFA) is developing innovative ways of working with copyrighted materials using our CineFiles Film Document Image Database as a model and testbed. This project, called “The CineFiles Image Database: A Model for Working With Copyrighted Materials,” has resulted in this "Copyright Resources Project website."


On this website, we present our Summary of Project, Expected Outcomes, Surveys and Results, and Final Report to IMLS. This website also includes a Copyright Toolbox containing digital rights management guidelines; permissions and clearances procedures; information on copyright legislation and fair use; and an in–depth list of websites, books, classes, and articles on copyright–related issues.

The CineFiles Film Document Image Database is a project of the Pacific Film Archive Library, a department of the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. This project has been supported in part by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities; the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian; and the Packard Humanities Institute, as well as by individual donors.

The CineFiles Image Database: A Model for Working With Copyrighted Materials was made possible through grant funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
