Sneak Peek for Lawyers, Librarians, and Pirates: “Georgia on My Mind”

Georgia on My Mind: The GSU E-Reserve Case Is a Peach.

With Phil Frankel

Description: When Cambridge University Press sued Georgia State University over the school’s electronic reserve policy in 2008, copyright law in the digital age was largely unclear, especially in the educational realm. After four years, the court’s recent 350 page decision announced surprising and controversial new rules for academic fair use. This presentation examines the controversy’s background, the lawsuit and legal framework , the decision and its future implications.

Screencasting, Tutorials, & You
by Eric Mahan Howd

Date: Thursday, 9 August
Location: Ithaca, NY

This one-day workshop will teach you to create your own screencasts which are effective, concise and give your users the help they need wherever and whenever they need it. If you’ve been puzzling how to share information with remote users on using a database, showing a search process, or demonstrating software (citations? downloading ebooks?…), this session will give you the skills to make it happen. Did you realize that screencasting can also be used for instruction? This session will examine pedagogical purposes for this medium as well. Complete details available at http://www.scrlc.org/Screencasts .
