Who owns your scholarship?

Registration is officially closed, but you can still join us TODAY (Monday, February 16) at 2:30 in the Coffman Great Hall to hear a presentation by Dr. Kenny Crews, Founding Director of Columbia University's Copyright Advisory Office. Dr. Crews is known as an engaging and knowledgeable speaker, and in just two hours you will:

  • Get concrete ideas on how to increase the visibility of/access to your work while still retaining ownership
  • Find out how the U's new copyright policy (approved by the Regents in 2007) applies to you
  • Discuss these issues with faculty from across the campus
  • Satisfy the Awareness/Discussion component of the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) continuing ed requirement

All that, and refreshments too! More information here.

Keeping Track of Your Research

Tired of keeping long lists of citations you might need later in a Word document? Or worse, a stack of notecards?

To make your life easier, University Libraries subscribes to RefWorks, an online citation management tool. Refworks helps students, faculty, and staff by making it easy to save citations (usually without transcribing anything), sort or filter them, and format them into bibliographies. You can create as many RefWorks accounts as you need, making it an ideal tool for sharing citations with your research group.

Want to get started? Jon Jeffryes and I will be teaching an hour-long RefWorks Basics workshop on September 9 at 2:30. For more information or to register, click here.
