Rights Well: An Authors' Rights Workshop for Librarians
Wirth, Andrea A.; Chadwell, Faye A.
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v10 n3 p337-354 Jul 2010
This article seeks to make a compelling case for authors' rights training through emphasis on academic librarians' dual roles as both authors and as liaisons to research and teaching faculty. Using the example of the Rights Well Workshop developed at Oregon State University Libraries, the article demonstrates the value of training librarians as authors in order to further develop their own understanding of copyright transfer and negotiation. The workshop provides a customizable model that librarians can use when educating faculty in other disciplines about author rights, with emphasis on the practices of the publishers relevant to the targeted discipline. (Contains 3 tables and 44 notes.)
