On April 12, 2002, a roundtable discussion was held during the joint National Council on Public History/Organization of American Historians annual meetings in Washington D.C. This roundtable, “Intellectual Property and the Historian in the New Millennium,” addressed issues of copyright for public historians as authors and users in the digital age, when the technologies of reproduction and dissemination have exploded and Congress has struggled to keep up. Roundtable chair Gerald Herman summarizes the challenges faced by public historians in the new millennium and introduces a transcript of the roundtable discussion.
