Research Project Clinics Offered

The University Libraries once again offer Research Project Clinics (RPCs) to undergraduate students. RPCs provide undergraduate students with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a librarian on a specific research assignment. Students will develop search strategies, discover various print resources and services available in William T. Jerome and Ogg Science Libraries, and identify online resources for their topics.

Guidelines for Research Project Clinics:
* Clinics are designed for undergraduate students. (The Libraries offer a separate service for graduate students by appointment. Call 372-6943.)

* Students must register for an appointment by midnight of the day before the requested appointment date to allow for individualized preparation.

* Students must have a specific assignment or project and will be asked to state their topic when they set up their appointment.

RPCs for undergraduate students are offered Mondays through Fridays, from March 12 to April 13. To schedule an appointment, call 372-6943, or stop by the Research & Information Desk on the first floor of the Jerome Library.

Information Transformation Discussions

Our Challenging Transformation Regarding Copyright and Use
Thursday, February 22, 12:00p.m. – 1:15 p.m
.
Description:
|
Emerging technologies require careful decision-making. With ready access to great reservoirs of information and knowledge, some educators, either from lack of awareness or a false sense of security, engage in illegal use of materials. Join this discussion to better understand “what you can use when.”


New Models of Publishing
Thursday, March 15, 2007, 5:00 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.
Description:

Online open archives, like OhioLink’s Digital Resource Commons (DRC), are publishing platforms that provide filtered access to articles, supplementary materials, supporting data, working papers, pre-prints, images, and more. They can extend the options for disseminating work and preserve the stages of scholarly research. Join this discussion to both gain and give perspectives about open access and the DRC platform.


New Models of Owning Ideas
Tuesday, April 17, 2007, noon – 1:15 p.m.
Description:

New models of publishing provide choices for authors. What are the advantages and disadvantages of new models of owning ideas? Does the author keep the copyright, retain some rights through Creative Commons, give the copyright to the publisher? Join this discussion to learn about these options and think about what is the best choice for you.

*Register through the Center; ctlt@bgsu.edu, for these discussions held in the Pallister Conference Room, Jerome Library.
