Why is plagiarism such a big deal in our universities? - Tara Brabazon

First students in our universities are threatened by the institutional consequences of plagiarism. Yet do teachers spend an equivalent amount of time teaching information literacy as they do frightening students about plagiarism? Tara asks her students how they feel about plagiarism and why it has become such an issue in the contemporary university.

To Share Or Not To Share? - By Rick Anderson

To Share Or Not To Share? - By Rick Anderson | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

What is "sharing" between and among libraries?

 

"In the digital realm, what is typically referred to as “sharing” is actually copying—sometimes legal and sometimes not. Understandably, the ease and ubiquity of uncontrolled copying in a networked digital environment makes copyright holders uneasy. And the fuzzy line between copying and sharing in that environment also makes the question of what it means for libraries to “share” resources much more complicated than it might seem at first blush."

Should libraries share, or not?

 

"We don’t (or shouldn’t) share because 'sharing is what we do as libraries,' still less because sharing is somehow a 'core value' of librarianship. Sharing is a means, not an end. We share in order to provide access, and to the degree that 'sharing' actually means 'copying,' it is legally and ethically complicated."

 

"We live in a radically different information world from the one that gave rise to ILL. Instead of resisting that reality, we should embrace it, rejoicing in the ways it allows us to serve our patrons better."

License to thrill: digital copyright | Lexology (Use of Images Online) - podcast

License to thrill: digital copyright | Lexology (Use of Images Online) - podcast | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

Morton Fraser
Austin Flynn, Sam Price and Gordon White:

"Have you ever used an image from a Google search for a presentation or uploaded the image to your Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Flickr account?

Have you ever thought about the implications of copyright?

Morton Fraser’s IP experts, Austin Flynn and Same Price, are joined by Gordon White from FatBuzz to discuss the use of images throughout social media networks; what exactly are the implications of ‘good, old fashioned’ copyright in the digital age?

Now that images are very much part of social media, with 240million uploaded to Facebook everyday (that’s 3,000 per second), and are ‘part of the public domain’ who exactly owns what and can you ‘innocently’ use another’s image?

They ask; what is the law surrounding the use of images online? How can you protect yourself and your images? Which license should you use - creative or commercial commons? What are the implications for bloggers? Are T&Cs of these licenses clear enough?"

This.On the gender gap in tech workers, by @rtennant http://t.co/rQ0310ST...

 

"[...]we can change things:


1. Work to change the culture. In many library tech situations, whether it is a chatroom or a server room, it’s still a men’s locker room atmosphere. 
2. Support and encourage women who try. 
3. Recruit and support women who are interested. 
4. If you are well along in your career, mentor promising women. 
5. Be verbose and inclusive with explanations, and spare with posturing."
