The University of Michigan Launches Project to Identify Orphan Works

The University of Michigan Library’s Copyright Office announced a new project yesterday. This project is sponsored by the HaithiTrust, a coalition 50 colleges and university that are working to maintian  a digital archive of important cultural heritage.

It’s no surprise that the HaithiTrust is funding it,  because the primary goal of the project is to identify which parts of the HaithiTrust’s collection are orphan works. Nearly 3  quarters of its collection is still under copyright, and an unknown percentage lack info on the copyright holders. That’s a significant impediment to the scholars and researchers who wish to access these works.
