The Free-text Rights Statements workshop will focus on what the free-text field holds, and how to create free-text statements that complement Standardized Rights Statements.
We assume that you have taken the Risk Management and Rights and Standardized Rights Statements workshops prior to attending this one.
The workshop is discussion based and requires preparation, active participation, and completion of a follow-up homework assignment in order to fully engage the material.
