Open Access Week Events at UMD

 

No workshops are currently scheduled, but if you are interested in hosting an Authors Rights or Copyright session for your department or unit, please contact Terry Owen, Digital Scholarship Librarian, at towen@umd.edu or 301-314-1328.


Author Rights Sessions

If you want to learn more about your basic rights as an author, publisher policies for posting on the web, author options and tools for retaining rights, and additional options such as publishing in open access journals, then plan to attend one of our sessions on Author Rights.


Copyright and Electronic 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.
