Copyright and Public Domain

Copyright law is an issue that libraries must deal with almost daily. The answer to any copyright question is “It depends.” Digital Right Management, fair use, licensing, Creative Commons, permissions—these are a few of the terms to know.

Public Domain materials are no longer in copyright (published before 1923) or never were copyrighted. They may be freely used without permission. Two popular sites of compiled digitized public domain materials are Public Doman Review. It has links to texts, sorted by genre. Project Gutenberg is a collection of ebooks in public domain.

Policies and Procedures

South Dakota Public Library Standards

Public Library Standards

The South Dakota Public Library Certification/Accreditation Standards were originally developed and administered by the South Dakota Library Association. In June 2008, the SDLA Board voted to move the administration of both the Certification and the Accreditation Standards to the South Dakota State Library. If you have questions about the Librarian Certification or Library Accreditation process, call the State Library at 605-773-3131.

The purpose of the accreditation process is to encourage the ongoing development of quality library service in the state.

This program is currently being updated and reviewed. October 4, 2010
