Copyright Office Releases Strategic Plan

The United States Copyright Office has released a 5-year strategic plan for 2016-2020. 

Of particular interest to legal researchers is the Office's plans to deploy a public search engine to allow for online patent research, and well as its plans to digitize older (pre-1978) copyrights and place them online in a searchable format.  The Office's plans include the development of metadata standards for the new patent research system, but specific details about these standards are not yet available.
