This event celebrated CLIR’s golden anniversary. Symposium topics included the findings of a landmark study on the condition and preservation needs of our academic and research collections; recent recommendations on the orphan works problem and fair use issues; and how technology is turning one city’s streets into a virtual museum. Special tributes were made to former presidents of CLIR and its predecessor organization.
