As part of the Libraries’ celebration of Open Access Week, 21-25 October, we
are offering two workshops.
you publish a journal article, you sign a copyright agreement. Do you know what
you're agreeing to when you sign it? Different journals have different
policies. How can you negotiate your contract to make the most of your rights
as a scholar, teacher, and author? Come learn how to preserve your rights to
reproduce, distribute, and display the work you create. Offered

COPYRIGHT AND THESES AND DISSERTATIONS
Do you plan to
include third-party materials in your thesis or dissertation? If so, do you
need to request permission from the copyright holder or does it fall under the
Fair Use exemption of the Copyright Law? This session covers best practices and
useful strategies to help make that determination, as well as how to protect the
copyright of your own research. Offered:
- Monday, 21 October 11:00 – noon
- Wednesday, 23 October 10:00 am – 11:00 am
