Issue Brief: Metadata and Copyright—Should Institutions License Their Data about Scholarship?

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is committed to promoting open scholarship, including making metadata—foundational information about scholarly works—as widely available as possible. Allowing the broadest access to and reuse of metadata advances scholarship, research, discovery, and innovation. In order to ensure the widest possible uses of metadata, institutions should share their metadata in a way that removes restrictions. However, institutions should also keep in mind that metadata can be shared across borders, a fact that may impact decisions on how to share it.
