On Friday, March 13th, we held a training event at Minitex for colleagues interested in learning about standardized rights statements and how to apply them. A small but engaged group joined us and together we reviewed the statements from rightsstatements.org and worked through examples from Minnesota Reflections and the University of Minnesota's collections. Our participants found that applying rights statements is often easier than you think!

Users of Minnesota Reflections may have noticed some changes to the database's metadata. Based on the recent work of the Rights Implementation Team, we have begun to change how we record and share the metadata associated with the rights to use and re-use items in Minnesota Reflections. These changes reflect the standard we have adopted, namely the work shared via RightsStatements.org. RightsStatements.org provides a set of standardized rights statements for digital cultural heritage heritage projects. In order to display this information, we have added some new fields to show the statement and the text that explains the statements.
