Lightning Talk: Positioning An Institutional Repository To Respond To Social Justice Issues, Sarah Hicks 2020 Duquesne University

Lightning Talk: Positioning An Institutional Repository To Respond To Social Justice Issues, Sarah Hicks

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The Duquesne Scholarship Collection (DSC), like so many others, was originally only home to Electronic Theses and Dissertations, Open Access Faculty Works, student research materials, and archival works. In order to thoughtfully expand the repository into something more dynamic and reflective of the university’s present, the DSC managers started with the strengths of the existing digital collections, and the formative documents of the university’s founding congregation, the Spiritans. This link to Spiritan charism allowed the DSC managers to add collections with a tilt towards social justice – collections that could be beneficial to those outside of the university community ...

Results: The study was able to determine which classes hit on specific DLs and where those classes might need more support in other DLs. The most common DLs being taught in courses are Reading, Interpreting, and Evaluating Data, and Using Data. The least ...


Osi 2019 Annual Report, Glenn Hampson 2020 Open Scholarship Initiative

Osi 2019 Annual Report, Glenn Hampson

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

OSI’s 2019 work focused on building a bridge to 2020—continuing our pivot from being an organization focused on understanding facts and perspectives, to one poised to pursue a significant, global reform agenda. This is a challenge for any group—doubly so for a group like OSI at the pioneering edge of a nebulous field, while also trying to maintain a republic format where all participants are co-equal leaders. OSI’s strategy in 2019 focused primarily on these three agenda items:

1. Find sustainable financing.

2. Help coordinate the construction of a new global roadmap for open.

3. Prepare ...

Copyright, Fair Use, And Creative Commons: An Active-Learning Exercise For Studio Art Students, Arthur J. Boston

Faculty & Staff Research and Creative Activity

This article describes an active-learning exercise intended to help teach copyright, fair use, and Creative Commons licenses. In the exercise students use a worksheet to draw original pictures, create derivative pictures on tracing paper, select Creative Commons licenses, and explore commercial usage, fair use, and copyright infringement. Librarian-instructors may find the completed worksheets to be useful aids to supplement copyright lectures; student perspectives will be integral because they are generating the examples used in discussion. Although a scholarly communication librarian developed this exercise to help introduce some basic copyright information to an undergraduate studio art and design class, the exercise ...
