MoDel Digitization agreeMent
General Description of the Project [insert here].
Paragraph 1(a): Times and hours of access to the Library collections.
Paragraph 1(b): Description of targeted collections of the Library.
Paragraph 1(d): Materials to which the Parties may claim copyright ownership.
[Note: the general desire is that neither the Publisher nor the Library will claim copyright in the
Digital Copies or in the descriptive metadata. However, it is conceivable that the parties might
choose to retain copyright on such substantive elements as abstracts and bibliographic notes
that could be part of the metadata. To the extent that such assertions of rights are desirable, they
should be itemized here. Nothing in this provision affects rights in the original works that any
person might hold.]
Paragraph 3(b): Schedule for pulling and sending Works to the Publisher.
Paragraph 3(d): Description of metadata to be provided by the Library to the Publisher.
[Note: Add general description of the available metadata, e.g., data available in MARC records
for each title.]

Paragraph 4(c): Standards for the Digital Copies.
[Note: Add technical details for the quality and standards for the Digital Copies. NARA’s digiti-
zation strategy provides some examples: http://www.archives.gov/digitization/strategy.html.]
