Details: Traditional publishing formats, such as subscription journals, generally require researchers to sign away all their author rights as a condition of publication. This can severely hamper the use of one’s own work in research and teaching while also making it harder for colleagues and the public to benefit from your scholarship. But new modes of scholarly publishing equip researchers to control how their work can be published and re-used, while also making it more accessible to others. Learn about new tools that can help you retain your copy-rights.
 
Opening up copyright: new freedoms and resources
Date and time: Wednesday, Oct. 23rd, 2 p.m.-3 p.m.
Location: E-classroom, TH 253
Presenters: Deb Kalvee, Associate University Librarian-Services & Facilities; Elizabeth Yates, Liaison/Scholarly Communication Librarian
New copyright regulations make it easier for faculty members and students to find and use information. There is also a wealth of "copy-free" materials online, including images, music, films, scholarly materials and more, which you can use without worrying about copyright. This workshop will help you find these copyright-free materials and learn how to use them in your teaching and research.
 
Open Access: Fact or Fiction
Date and time: Friday, Oct. 25, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.         
Location: Library entrance, Schmon Tower
