Currently, there is no single reference for established rights and reproductions or permissions specialists or professionals new to the field. The forthcoming publication, Rights & Reproductions: The Handbook for Cultural Institutions, will be the first comprehensive resource to focus solely on the rights and reproductions field. It will be co-published by the Indianapolis Museum of Art and The American Alliance of Museums Press and has an anticipated publication date of July 2015. With intellectual property laws and rights and reproductions methodologies ever-changing with the development of new technologies, this digital publication, produced using the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI) Toolkit platform, will be a living document that can be updated to stay current with trends and best practices. As recent discussions in the field center around fair use, open access, and reproduction fees for scholarly publications, the ability to add content, reference papers, conference presentations, and court cases to the handbook will be vital. Rights & Reproductions: The Handbook for Cultural Institutions boasts a selection of contributors ranging from rights and reproductions specialists in museums and libraries, to intellectual property lawyers, and collection specialists who each bring a unique expertise and knowledge of the field to this publication. Additionally, a panel of lawyers specializing in intellectual property will review the content prior to its release. This presentation, led by three of the contributors, will introduce attendees to the upcoming publication by sampling the early preview chapters.
