Copyright / ERES Session from Access Services

Caitlin Noussias and Melanie Smith-Farrell presented a session on using copyrighted material in courses in general and including ERES in Springboard in particular as part of a summer series on online courses from Instructional Services on campus. From all reports, the session was very well received. I have attached the powerpoint below so that you can see what our colleagues presented. This is the first time we have promoted ERES in Springboard, so we may also get more questions about this service.

My thanks to Caitlin and Melanie for representing us well!

Know the Roo Sessions

As you may know, University Libraries is hosting two sessions in conjunction with the Institute for Teaching and Learning entitled Know the Roo: University Libraries Resources, Services, and Partnerships to Enhance Success. The sessions are today (4/17) at 1:00 and tomorrow (4/18) at 2:00 in room 154. I am lucky enough to be hosting the sessions and wanted to share the Libguide that I prepared (with plenty of help from Trevor and Lisa): http://libguides.uakron.edu/faculty. This is just for these sessions and can grow into a more general guide for faculty. Please send me any ideas you have for additional content or let me know if you would like to add to the guide.

As an aside, Trevor and I are aware that three of the widgets are not working properly. They will be fixed ASAP!

UA Night @ Canal Park

As you may have seen, May 4 is UA Night at old Canal Park. The UA marching band will perform and the first 1,000 fans will get a Jim Tressel bobble head. Game time is 6:05 and tickets are only $6! It is a Saturday, so this may not be the best date for a UL outing, and if there is little interest in this game, I will look into another, but I thought I would see if anyone wanted to go as a group. I have contacted our Aeros ticket rep (yes, we have one) and can give him a headcount as late as 4/26 for the game. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail with the number of tickets you need ($6 each). Payment will not be due until I drop off the tickets to you (the week of 4/29).
