CCANZ July newsletter

Creative Commons news

The NZ Open Government Data Programme has released a set of training videos. At CCANZ, we’re busy making a video of our own, about CC in Kiwi schools – more on that next month.

Latest from NZCommons

Lots to read over at NZCommons.org.nz! Learn about how to access content from Aotearoa’s rich on-screen history, the rise of open GLAM in NZ, and the importance of considering copyright while Instagramming. If there’s a burning issue you’re working on, we invite you to contribute a piece yourself.

Turnbull Library Record

The good folk at the Alexander Turnbull Library are looking to digitise issues of the Turnbull Library Record since the 1940s and publish them online under a CC licence – but first they need to track down all the rights holders. Have you ever contributed? Do you know someone who has? Please email fiona.oliver@dia.govt.nz.

Auckland Museum is looking for a Rights Specialist

Great opportunity for someone in the GLAM sector: the Auckland War Memorial Museum Tamaki Paenga Hira is recruiting for a Rights Specialist, and they’ve asked us to spread the word among the Open GLAM community. Applications close 12 July.

Upcoming events

CC clinics for schools

We’re running after-school ‘clinics’ via Google Hangouts for anyone who wants to stop by with a question about Creative Commons in NZ schools. Book your place now for a spot in July, August or September.

Adopt a NZ school for CCANZ

Our goal is for all Kiwi schools to be CC schools – but there are over 2,500 schools in Aotearoa, so we need your help! Would you be willing to adopt your local school, and talk to them about Creative Commons? If so, please get in touch.

CC around the world

Now’s the time to get your proposals in for the 2015 Creative Commons Global Summit (held in Seoul in October). SPARC (the scholarly publishing and academic resources coalition, based in the US) has released an Open Education Action Plan template(plus slides). Catch up on the latest from the open education movement in Australia.
