Should they consider publishing open access? What are predatory journals and how can they detect them?

The Copyright X Course is taught by professors at Harvard University and is available synchronously to a limited number of librarians each year. However, the entire course content is available online and is openly licensed. This is a more traditional course on copyright and includes topics that would largely be discussed in a law classroom, such as theories underlying copyright law, cultural theory as it applies to copyright, and secondary liability for copyright. The course also covers many traditional areas of copyright, though, including basic foundations of copyright law, the different rights included with copyright (such as the right to reproduction, distribution and performance), and, of course, fair use. Included in the course are video lectures and lecture slides.

Rating
0.0 stars

The ETD+ Virtual Workshop Series, taught by Dr. Katherine Skinner, is a set of free introductory training resources on crucial data curation and digital longevity techniques. Focusing on the Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) as a mile-marker in a student’s research trajectory, it provides in-time advice to students and faculty about avoiding common digital loss scenarios for the ETD and all of its affiliated files.

Finding Balance: Collaborative Workflows for Risk Management in Sharing Cultural Heritage Collections Online
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Digitizing rare and unique historical documents so they can be shared online is mission-critical work for most cultural heritage institutions, but it can be difficult to complete this work, especially intellectual property rights management, at a scale that matches user demand. The authors of this open educational resource offer guidance for creating scalable, cross-functional workflows using a risk-management approach that increases efficiency and distributes responsibility for rights assessment work more equitably across stakeholders. It includes advice for navigating knowledge gaps, building an engaged team with the right skillsets, reimagining workflows, and rethinking traditional archival processing workflows to build capacity for rights analysis during arrangement and description. Each chapter includes a helpful exercise for implementing this guidance in your own institution.
