ItemAdvising Faculty on Law Journal Publication Agreements(2012) Keele, Benjamin J.One of the primary areas of service for academic librarians is faculty support, and one of faculty‘s primary goals is to publish law journal articles. Librarians provide a lot of assistance in the pre-submission phase of an article‘s development — crafting searches, retrieving sources, and compiling statistics. We also help journal staff with cite-checking after an article has been submitted and accepted. An additional service librarians can offer faculty is reviewing journal publication agreements when articles are accepted. ItemCopyright and Research in Google Book Search(2011) Keele, Benjamin J.Many researchers—even trained professionals—often use the Google search engine to begin searches for information. Google’s many products enable researchers to search public websites, scholarly articles, and even patents. One vast area of information not yet thoroughly indexed by Google is print books. Google Book Search (also at times referred to as Google Books, Google Print and Google Library Project) is the company’s effort to digitize and index the world’s print literature. ItemCopyright Provisions in Law Journal Publication Agreements(2010) Keele, Benjamin J.Mr. Keele examined copyright provisions of law journal publication agreements and found that a minority of journals ask authors to transfer copyright. Most journals also permit authors to self-archive articles. He recommends journals make their agreements publicly available and use licenses instead of copyright transfers. ItemDiminishing the perceived need for black open access(2017-10-04) Baich, TinaThe attention garnered by unauthorized sharing and pirating of scholarly content has resulted in a new category on the open access spectrum – black open access. Though black open access attempts to solve the discovery problem inherent in the multitude of open access content sources, it does so in violation of copyright law. Tools have now been developed to combat this same problem legally, including the Open Access Button and Unpaywall. Librarians can engage in several strategies to help diminish the need for black open access, including the promotion of these discovery tools through education and services. We can share the tools with our users and teach them why they should not engage in unauthorized sharing. We can use the tools to fulfill requests and capture the benefits of open access in interlibrary loan. There are also more general strategies related to infrastructure, policy, and education that are important to acknowledge. Librarians can and must move the open access conversation forward in a positive, and legal, direction. This paper provides an overview of the black open access landscape, discusses the discovery tools for uncovering legal open access content, and highlights how librarians can improve systems, services, and education efforts related to open access and open access discovery tools. ItemJust the Facts (A Handout for Triaging Copyright Questions)(2020-01-27) Piper, Gemmicka ItemThe Librarian's Copyright Companion, Second Edition(2012-11) Heller, James S.; Hellyer, Paul; Keele, Benjamin J. ItemOversharing? Copyright, Open Access, and Managing Risks in ILL(2016-09-08) Baich, Tina; Dethloff, NoraILL staff must be familiar with a network of copyright laws and guidelines to determine whether they can legally fill an ILL copy request with the material in hand. An important factor in making such determinations is a risk assessment. While the CONTU guidelines can be a measuring stick, there has been much discussion recently about their applicability in our current environment and whether or not they restrict our application of the fair use restriction. The answer to these copyright questions may appear to be open access, but widespread sharing through social media channels makes risk assessment a requirement in this arena as well. This presentation will discuss the safe harbors created by the CONTU guidelines and open access publishing and how to mitigate institutional risk in the sharing of journal content.
