    Scope & contentPublisher (6th edn):

    As an archivist or records manager it is essential to keep up to date with the complexities of copyright legislation, and Copyright for Archivists and Records Managers has been described as an 'unparalleled' resource for that purpose.

    What is copyright? Who owns it and for how long? What rights does it confer, and what are the limitations and exceptions? This comprehensive manual uniquely outlines copyright law in the UK with special reference to the unpublished materials commonly found in archive and records collections such as maps, legal records, records of local authorities and parish registers. It also gives comprehensive information on authorship and duration of copyright in older as well as modern works and on the wide range of exceptions and limitations to copyright, particularly those relevant to archivists, records managers, librarians and curators. It offers advice on rights in the electronic environment, moral rights and rights in databases and contains extensive tables of duration of copyright in other countries.
