Friday, June 19, 12:00 – 1:00
Meyerson Conference Room – Room 223 – VanPelt Library
Copyright can often be used as a method to “control” academic work. This brown-bag discussion will address how librarians and authors can use copyright as a tool to distribute scholarship more effectively through channels like Hathi-Trust, ScholarlyCommons, and sites like Academia.edu. Join us for a session that will increase your existing copyright knowledge and address copyright issues that affect both librarians and the communities we serve.
Please feel free to send in advance questions or scenarios you’d like to see discussed. The workshop is open to all professional and support staff in the library, with the usual provision that operational requirements of all units must be met and supervisory approval obtained in advance, as well as others from the Penn Community. So feel free to pass this on to whomever you think may be interested.
