Upcoming Events - Graduate School of Library and Information Science - University of Illinois http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events-rss.xml en Information City Lecture http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/10/23/information-city-lecture <p>For six years GSLIS has sponsored ten Digital Divide Lectures each fall. This year we continue under a new name: the Info City Lectures. An information city is coming into being. The industrial city was a result of all kinds of forces. This time around, can we be more conscious and deliberate? Can we make sure the outcomes work for all of us? This means conversation, so the Digital Divide Lectures become the Info City Lectures.</p><p>On October 23, the speakers will be Mike Smeltzer and Levi Dinkla. Smeltzer, former primary investigator of UC2B and retired director of networking for CITES, University of Illinois, will discuss UC2B origins and history. Levi Dinkla, vice president of iTV-3, will discuss the current state and future of high-speed fiber optic broadband access in Champaign-Urbana. </p><p>For more information visit the <a href="http://groups.lis.illinois.edu/cilab/DigitalDivide.html">Information City Lecture Series webpage,</a> or contact <a href="mailto:">"Associate Professor Kate Williams"-katewill, at illinois.edu-</a> or doctoral student <a href="mailto:">"Noah Lenstra"-nlenstr2, at illinois.edu-</a>.  </p><div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-label">Location:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 131 LIS </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-eventdate"> <div class="field-label">Event Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 10/23/2014 - <span class="date-display-start">11:00am</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">11:50am</span></span> </div> </div> </div> http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/10/23/information-city-lecture#comments 9344 at http://www.lis.illinois.edu Easy A Workshop: Presenting in Blackboard Collaborate http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/10/23/easy-workshop-presenting-blackboard-collaborate <p>Presenting in a LEEP class and not sure what to do?

Come out and discuss Jean Dryden's article "The Role of Copyright in Selection for Digitization" from SAA's American Archivist journal. We'll talk about the issues related to copyright restrictions on access to digital archives. How well do archivists need to know copyright law? What are the copyright risks involved in making archival materials available online? What is the best practice for copyright risk-assessment of digital materials? We will discuss these questions and more at the SAA Archives Reading Group!</p><p>Because we're all busy people and it's kind of short notice, please feel free to show up even if you don't have time to read the article. We'll hang out, have a few drinks, and chat about copyright law and digital archives, among other things. </p><p>Article: Jean Dryden. "The Role of Copyright in Selection for Digitization," <em>The American Archivist 77</em>(1); Spring/Summer 2014. This article reports the findings of a study of the impact of copyright on what U.S.archival repositories select for digitization and the extent to which they seek authorization from rights holders. Based on the website content of 96 repositories, 66 survey responses, and 18 interviews, the findings reveal a wide range of practice. While American repositories are generally conservative in that they digitize holdings that present no copyright complications, there is evidence of a shift from an item-level copyright analysis approach to a bolder risk-assessment approach that may better achieve the archival mission to make holdings available for use. The article identifies tools to support a risk-assessment approach and suggests areas of further research to identify best practices.</p><div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-label">Location:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Quality Bar, 110 N Neil St, Champaign </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-sponsor"> <div class="field-label">Sponsor:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Society of American Archivists Student Chapter </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-eventdate"> <div class="field-label">Event Date:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 10/23/2014 - 7:00pm</span> </div> </div> </div> http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/10/23/saa-archives-reading-group-meeting#comments 9507 at http://www.lis.illinois.edu Spring 2015 Registration Advising http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/10/24/spring-2015-registration-advising <p>Have questions about registration?
