Claire Lewis Evans, Editor for Digital and Electronic Publishing at The University of Alabama Press, gave a great workshop on intellectual property last week. She has made available many resources from her presentation: video (in Tegrity), slides, and two documents: Campus Copyright Rights and Responsibilities: A Basic Guide to Policy Considerations and The Association of American University Presses Permission FAQs. Thanks so much to Claire for giving us a great overview of the issues at stake within universities.
Keeping Your Digital Works Alive
At last week’s brown bag, “Keeping Your Digital Works Alive,” Jody DeRidder (Head of Digital Services, UA Libraries) led our discussion about important considerations for selecting items and avenues for long-term access to digital materials. She has also built this incredibly helpful wiki, Recommendations for Authors and Creators which offers info about standards, general suggestions, and resources for more information. Thanks to Jody for her presentation and this resource!
