ACRL and ARL, through the Institute on Scholarly Communication, along with SPARC are sponsoring a special joint Webcast on author rights. Julia Blixrud, Assistant Director for Public Programs of SPARC, and Trisha Davis, Rights Management Coordinator of The Ohio State University Libraries, will discuss ways authors can amend publisher copyright transfer agreements to keep key rights to journal articles. This Webcast will provide librarians with the basic information needed to educate faculty on campus before they transfer ownership of their intellectual output and help them understand the consequences and options. Increase your visibility on campus, your influence on the higher education and research environment, and become a respected local authority on this important scholarly communication issue.
Registration is limited to 75. The cost of the Webcast is being partially underwritten by the sponsors and offered for $35 to all participants. For complete information, including a link to registration, go to: http://www.ala.org/ala/acrl/acrlproftools/authorrights.htm
