Creative Commons and Intellectual Work: Panel Presentation Nov 21st

“How Creative Commons Helps Artists, Students, Educators, Scientists, and Researchers Productively and Legally Use and Share Intellectual Work”

Panel Leader: Garrick Ducat, Instructional Designer, Mercy College of Northwest Ohio
November 21, 2008, 113 Olscamp Hall & 1011 Cedar Point Center, 2:30-4:30 p.m.

  • Learn about Creative Commons licenses as a method to both protect and share your intellectual work
  • Learn how to discover and legally use and re-use others’ intellectual work

Creative Commons (CC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to working to offer creators of intellectual products ways to protect their work while still encouraging certain uses of those works, valuing both innovation and protection equally.  CC provides free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, and educators easily mark their work with the freedoms and restrictions they want it to carry.  Furthermore, the CC website also offers options for locating content with a Creative Commons license.  This allows teachers, researchers and students to locate usable content and easily understand any limitations on that use.

Centennial Perspectives: BGSU Trivia Quiz

BGSU Trivia was created for the 75th Anniversary of Bowling Green State University in 1985. Similar in play to the popular game, “Trivial Pursuit”, questions were organized into six categories-people, sports, places, odds-n-ends, campus life, and history. To mark the Centennial celebration of the University, the Center for Archival Collections will present a quiz each month, featuring two questions from each of the categories. We hope to have an interactive version available soon, but in the meantime, you can still test your knowledge and have fun!

To schedule an appointment, please call 419.372.6943 or stop by the Research & Information Desk on the first floor of Jerome Library.  Please schedule your appointment by midnight of the day before you would like to meet with someone.  This allows librarians time to prepare.
