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 Mon, 20 Oct 2014 17:48:25 +0000 cglaze 9507 at http://www.lis.illinois.edu Courseapalooza (Pilot Event) http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/10/22/courseapalooza-pilot-event <p>On-campus students are invited to a small trial-run of an event to join core GSLIS faculty for very short overviews of their spring courses and mingling/discussion.

"Measuring What Matters to Stakeholders" will be presented by Jacqueline Leskovec, planning, outreach and evaluation coordinator, National Network of Libraries of Medicine. The session will be held at the University of Illinois Research Park, EnterpriseWorks Building, 60 Hazelwood Drive (corner of Oak and Hazelwood), Suite 130. As in the past, the CRT venue may change due to participant response.</p><p>As information professionals and knowledge managers, we are challenged with how we get decision makers to understand the value that we bring to our organizations. Measuring what matters to key stakeholders is one step in the process. This presentation will provide a framework for defining and communicating meaningful measures and offer an opportunity for participants to sample some tools that will help them demonstrate how their services make a difference to the organization. This is a pared down version of a four-hour workshop that was made available to health sciences and other librarians. The educational objectives include:</p><ul><li>Understand the library's value within the mission of the larger organization</li><li>Identify key library stakeholders and what matters to them</li><li>Build measurement into the strategic planning process</li><li>Learn about tools that link activities to outcomes</li><li>Communicate value through measurement results</li></ul><p>Attendees are encouraged to confirm their participation no later than Friday, October 31, either by email to <a href="mailto:">"Sharon Johnson"-sdjohnso, at illinois.edu-</a> or by phone at (217) 244-6473. Box lunches will be provided for those participating in person. Please advise if there are any dietary restrictions. Those joining the discussion remotely will be provided with a local and toll-free number for dial-in and instructions for connecting to Microsoft Lync for the webconference portion of the meeting. A confirmation email will be sent on Tuesday, November 4, with pertinent details.</p><p>The 2015 GSLIS CRT dates have been set. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend on March 6 (Applied Project Session), June 5, September 11, and November 13.</p><p>Recommendations for future topics or a desire to lead an upcoming session are always welcome.</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"> University of Illinois Research Park, EnterpriseWorks Building </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">Fri, 11/07/2014 - <span class="date-display-start">11:00am</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">1:00pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> http://www.lis.illinois.edu/events/2014/11/07/gslis-corporate-roundtable-measuring-what-matters-stakeholders#comments Fri, 17 Oct 2014 16:55:25 +0000 mclaugh 9505 at http://www.lis.illinois.edu
