News From Around the Libraries

e-Learning Survey
As the Libraries continue to increase their focus on e-Learning, the Libraries have formed a group to formulate best practices in the digital environment, make more consistent presentation of tools, educate staff, and combine and share resources.  The first step of the group is to inquire what software Libraries staff are currently using to make tutorials.  Please consider taking a few moments to fill out a quick survey about your current practices at: http://z.umn.edu/tutorials .

Join Pat Aufderheide, co-director of the Center for Social Media at American University, and our own Copyright Librarian, Nancy Sims, for a presentation and question and answer session on the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries.  All staff members with an interest in fair use issues in our library work are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Please invite colleagues at other local academic and research libraries as well.
