I find that this text object metadata scheme might be useful for describing corpora.
I should look at these auxiliary METS extensions and include them in OLAC discussions
In the fall term of 2022 I took a course on Metadata at UNT. In that course I encountered an interesting Rights Metadata schema create my the California Digital Libraries Project called copyrightMD. This schema is interesting because it articulates where a resource was created.
his is currently on the web here:
But that website seems to not render 100% so I looked it up in the Internet Archive here:
CopyrightMD Has been mentioned in the following academic publications:
- Developing a Rights Metadata Dictionary for Digital Surrogates https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/19386380903095024
I find the list of rights metadata schemas list in the library guide at UCF very helpful:
For rights metadata, the common metadata standards such as Dublin Core include a “rights” field. Any known intellectual property rights held for the data, including access rights and rights holder, can be specified in that field. Some digital repositories provide an opportunity to assign a Creative Commons license to the materials or datasets deposited in the repository.
However I found that the MEts Rights schema was not linked appropriately:
I personally find the statements at rightsstatements.org to be limiting:
The educational use permitted one is very confusing: https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC-EDU/1.0/?language=en
Note that Creative Commons used to have one like this but they did away with the whole educational use series of licenses, but I can't find them at the moment. I would have thought they might have been here: https://creativecommons.org/retiredlicenses/
Real problems with academics using CC licenses:
