Invitation to National Open Access Week Activities

Open access to research and scholarship has been facilitated by digital technology. For several years all medical research funded by the National Institute of Health and Science has been made accessible free on Internet. Today there are many open access peer reviewed academic journals represented in the Directory of Open Access Journals (http://www.doaj.org/).

In order to foster awareness of the open access movement on campus, the University Libraries are organizing a series of activities during the week of 18-22 October, designated as National Open Access Week. These activities will include webcasts, workshops, and awareness tables. Below you will find the time and place of those activities.

New: Copyright workshops

Getting Acquainted with Copyright

How many copyrights do you own? How long will they last? Can someone else quote from your paper in their own? Can you post your course readings online for your students? Copyright is really confusing - what is it even for, anyway? This workshop will give you a solid grounding in some of the elements of copyright law that are essential to scholarship, teaching, and research. Learn more about protections in the law for educators, and about your rights as an author or creator. Discuss and debate with your peers about some of the burning questions in the field, and enjoy exploring some entertaining and thought-provoking examples. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
Registration link - http://z.umn.edu/meetcopyright  Sessions on 10/4 and 11/2

Fair Use in Everyday Life

Fair use is a vital part of copyright law for scholars, researchers, artists, and just about anyone who communicates with anyone else. Quotation, criticism, review, collage, parody - all involve aspects of fair use. In this workshop, we'll discuss examples of fair use situations in visual arts, music, and video, as well as in academic research and writing. We'll learn to identify situations where fair use applies, and other situations where copyright answers may be more straightforward. We'll also develop our understandings of the factors that determine whether a use is "fair" and practice applying these concepts with real-world examples. Expect to think hard, debate a little, and have some fun. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.
