SAMPLE MENU

Dissertators and Thesis Writers:

Wait! Do you have permission to use that graph or image in your dissertation? How can you get permission? Ask a librarian….

    Is your dissertation or thesis going to go viral now that it’s electronic? Who can read it and when?

Editors:

    Should you publish that still from Lady Gaga’s latest video? What’s “fair use” in publishing?

TAs:

    Should you show that film in class? Distribute copies of that chapter? What’s “fair use” in the classroom?

Student Authors:

    Yay! You’re getting published! But what rights are you giving away in the author agreement?

Graduate Students:

    What is open access, and why should you care?
    What are Creative Commons licenses, and why are there several options?
    How can you decide which flavors are right for you?
    Bring your questions, and the Librarians will serve up answers!
