Copyright Basics with Lorre Smith of the University Libraries 3:15 to 4:00 PM Levitt Room, Milne Hall (use Page Hall entrance)

Presented by The Student Chapter of the American Library Association (SCALA):

This session will introduce several of the main themes within the area of copyright law that are of interest to library and information professionals, including copyright law, fair use, the public domain and open access. Participants in the session will discover resources for becoming familiar with these areas as well as for continuing study and reference. The session is a lead-off for a series of four sessions which will take place over the course of the semester for the Copyright Study Group (subsequent meeting dates and times will be determined by interested participants). Lorre Smith is the bibliographer for Sociology, Anthropology, Linguistics, and Cognitive Sciences and resident copyright guru at the University Libraries.

Light refreshments will be served.

CCIWIT Strategy Session 10:00 am, CS Conference Room (LI-98).

 

 Are you a woman in computer or information science? Are you taking classes in a CCI course, working on a major or minor or in a graduate program in computing or information? Are you an alumna looking to give back?

 

If yes, this is for you.

 

The College of Computing and Information Women in Technology program, started in 2007, is dedicated to supporting, empowering and building community among women faculty and students and professionals. In the past, CCIWIT has funded student travel to the Grace Hopper Women in Computing Conference, been a co-organizer for the regional New York Celebration of Women in Computing (NYCWiC), developed a roadshow using social robotics, hosted events such as the Junior FIRST Lego League Expo and Microsoft Digigirlz. 

 

As we enter our 5th year, it’s time to reassess our mission and efforts. Please join us for a strategy session to define how best to support each other and plan upcoming events and initiatives.
