Webinar: Ohio Supreme Court issues landmark Dormant Minerals Act decisions

Bricker & Eckler LLP

On September 15th, the Ohio Supreme Court issued a series of landmark rulings in 14 pending cases which confirmed that the 1989 version of the Ohio Dormant Minerals Act (DMA) was not self-executing. In the lead case, Corban v. Chesapeake Exploration L.L.C., 2016-Ohio-5796, the Court concluded that the “1989 law was not self-executing and did not automatically transfer ownership of dormant mineral rights by operation of law.” Instead, surface owners were “required to bring a quiet title action” prior to 2006 in order to establish abandonment. After June 30, 2006 (the effective date of the 2006 version of the DMA), a surface owner is “required to follow the statutory notice and recording procedures enacted in 2006." Bricker & Eckler attorneys Matt Warnock and Aaron Bruggeman will host a webinar to discuss the Court’s decisions in Corban, Walker v. Shondrick-Nau and Albanese v. Batman, and the potential impact of those decisions throughout Ohio.

Fugitive Hunters: Digital collection development of born-digital government information

NCLA

“Fugitive” documents – documents not sent automatically to FDLP libraries – have always been a problem for the FDLP community. Libraries have historically dealt with fugitives aggressively and creatively, collectively and individually, in response to the needs of their Designated Communities. This presentation will give context to the "fugitive" issue and the digital present, demonstrating that born-digital community-wide collection development is a logical, rational, responsible, and important part of a document librarian's job. For notes and links mentioned in the webinar, see the FGI blog post: http://freegovinfo.info/fugitives Presenter James A. Jacobs (jajacobs@ucsd.edu) is Data Services Librarian Emeritus, University of California San Diego. He has more than 25 years experience working with digital information, digital services, and digital library collections. He is a co-founder of Free Government Information (freegovinfo.info). James R. Jacobs (jrjacobs@stanford.edu is the US Government Information Librarian at Stanford University Libraries where he works on both traditional collection development as well as digital projects like LOCKSS-USDOCS and Web harvesting.
