Webcast Screening: Open Access and Your Publications: What’s Copyright Got To Do With It?

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 2:30 pm
Columbia University, Butler Library, Room 523

Join us to screen a webcast of an American Library Association (ALA) webinar with Kenneth Crews, director of Columbia's Copyright Advisory Office.

For librarians, researchers and many other library users, the open access movement has enabled easy and reliable access to a wide range of new publications.  However, the success of open access hinges on the terms in the agreements between authors and publishers. The copyright language that spells out whether the public will have access to specific material might be buried in a cryptic, pro forma email attachment or even a click-through agreement. Don’t let your materials stay hidden under a rock—facilitate access by learning to be proactive with the expert advice of copyright authority Kenneth D. Crews.

This is second of a series of occasional ALA webinars called Crews on Copyright.

The screening at Columbia University is part of Open Access Week 2012. It is open to Columbia students, faculty, and staff.
