In an era of advanced technology, where image sharing is just a click away, does a museum have the right to reproduce any image for educational purposes? What are the possible copyright issues that arise from allowing guests to photograph artifacts within the gallery space? From membership managers to registrars, all museum workers need to be informed of proper copyright practices to maintain the integrity of your institution. All attendees receive an outline of such practices and a bibliography to better understand these issues. #NutsAndBolts
