Paywall: The Business of Scholarship

For Open Access Week 2018, we’re screening Paywall: The Business of Scholarship. This documentary focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google. Refreshments will be served.

Library Workshop: Copyright for Teaching, Scholarship, and Open Educational Resources

Is it ethical to post an article to Blackboard if it’s not available online? Should you sign a restrictive author agreement with a publisher? Is it legal to show students a film in class?

As part of teaching and scholarly practices, we routinely confront (or ignore) the challenges introduced by copyright. This workshop will demystify copyright misconceptions and introduce practical solutions for the common copyright challenges you confront as a teacher and scholar. Refreshments will be served.
