Fair-Use Question of the Month: What about Four Factor Checklists?
Center for Social Media    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
I've been asked to create some guidelines for faculty at my university on using copyrighted material in our library on their Blackboard sites for classes. I've seen a number of "four factor" checklists and think this might be a solution, especially since faculty members want clear, bright-line advice. I could design a simple step-through process to take them through the four factors online. Would this be a helpful approach? More

Some Associations, Scholars Protest Bill That Would Curb Public Access to Research
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Opposition to the Research Works Act continues to spread. In a statement posted on its website, the Modern Language Association said it opposes the bill, HR 3699, which would prevent federal agencies from requiring researchers to make the published results of federally supported research available to the public without publishers' consent. That would undo public-access mandates such as the National Institute of Health's, under which federal-grant recipients must deposit copies of their papers in the PubMed Central repository within a year of publication.
