Event ALCTS webinar: Solutions for Copyright Issues in E-Learning

by Julene Jones on Mon, Aug 7, 2017 at 02:17 pm

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

 

Description: Libraries are spending increasingly large percentages of their budgets on electronic resources. As online education and the use of e-resources dramatically escalate, awareness of copyright issues becomes crucial, not only in the library world but also in the academic community as a whole. Libraries struggle to ensure copyright compliance for all materials used in electronic reserves and learning management systems (LMS). In switching to ProQuest SIPX for managing and sharing digital course materials, Pepperdine predicted savings in both staff time and copyright costs. The presenters will share how Pepperdine integrated SIPX with their LMS (Sakai) to allow them to easily find copyrighted course materials and to make the materials accessible from the Sakai Courses site. Ensuring that library resources and open content are visible through e-reserves translates into helping support the teaching and learning environment and closer library collaborations with IT and faculty.

 

Learning outcomes: Following the webinar, attendees will understand:

* How to deal with copyright management challenges in the era of nearly universal adoption of learning management systems.

* How integrating a tool such as SIPX with a learning management system can make it easier to find copyrighted course materials.

 

Who should attend?

Academic Librarians and librarians struggling with copyright issues in e-learning environments

 

Presenter:

Sally Bryant has been the Head of Access Services at Pepperdine University since 2007 and was Head of Technical Services prior to that. She also is the Library Liaison to Screenwriting and Film Studies and the division of International Studies and Languages, Screenwriting and Film Studies. As an undergraduate, Sally spent a year at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. She has a Master’s degree in International Relations from American University and an MLIS from San Jose State University.

 

Gan Ye is currently working at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. Learning from potential new tools to explore scholarly impact has become a new research area for her. Her other major research interests include linked data, different system integration, cloud based systems, link resolvers and metadata management. Gan Ye holds Master degrees from McGill University, Canada and from Nanjing University, China.
