Digital data is growing at an exponential rate, and the work involved in managing that data is rapidly increasing as well. How can we ensure that our research data will still be available in a usable form in 5, 10, or 20 years? We will discuss why having a data management plan is important as well as key considerations and best practices for data management. Note: This class is also available online.

Fair Use in Everyday Life 9/22

| No Comments

Wed, 09/22/2010 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 101 Walter Library

Register here for the workshop.

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 for faculty and instructors, 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.
