I’m doing a session at the Ontario Library Conference tomorrow with a few colleagues. The topic is Creative Commons licensing and I’m doing the section on Open Data. It’s a kind of a replay of what we did for library staff about a year ago.

Here’s the info this time:

Session: #308
Thursday 9:05 AM 10:20 AM
Creative Commons and Beyond

Speaker(s)
Timothy Bristow, Digital Humanities Librarian; John Dupuis, Acting Associate University Librarian, Information Services; Andrea Kosavic, Digital Initiatives Librarian; Sharon Wang, Association Librarian; York University

Learn more about creative commons (CC) and the licensing options available. Open access will be discussed in relation to copyright, clarifying the importance of creative commons. The Panton Principles will be explained, including the role of creative commons in best practices for open data licensing. Other topics include the use of creative commons in education and scholarly publishing, how to find licensed content, and a tool to check attribution will be presented.

And some relevant resources:

Some of my previous Around the Web posts with Open Data resources are here and here.
