Hello, my name is Catherine Seigneret. I work as a technician in the digitisation service of Bibliothèque Diderot de Lyon, which is a university library.
Digitization of public domain texts sometimes transform them into new editions with new copyrights on them or with restrictions on their re-use. Most of the time, digitization projects really enable free unrestricted access to patrimonial texts. A variety of licences exist for this, like Public Domain Mark, creative commons licences, open licence.
I am interested in the choices that can be made by libraries on this issue.
I am happy at the idea of meeting you all very soon !
