Meredith Kahn, Publishing Services & Outreach Librarian, Michigan Publishing

A basic understanding of intellectual property concerns is essential for academic authors, who are increasingly responsible for clearing rights for their own publications, or are seeking to do more than simply sign away their rights to a publisher. This workshop will offer a basic introduction to copyright , fair use, and author’s rights, as well as issues of special concern to scholars in the humanities, including copyright law for music, art, film, theater, and literature.

About the Publishing Practice Series

Publish, Preserve, Promote: Navigating the Present and Future of Academic Publishing

As part of the university library, Michigan Publishing serves a unique role on campus. Michigan Publishing produces monographs and journals, but it also facilitates conversations among scholars about the nature of their scholarly communication and the future of academic publishing. This October, the Institute for the Humanities is pleased to host a series of discussions and workshops to help faculty and graduate students successfully navigate the changing landscape of scholarly publishing.

Tuesdays, 12:30-2, in the Institute for the Humanities Common Room unless otherwise indicated.
