Women’s History Book Display

Today begins Women's History Month!

To celebrate, we've asked our Library assistants to put together a display by choosing books that focused on journalist topics, women and stories that fascinated and inspired them most. We'd like to thank them sincerely for taking the time to help us with this! Thank you again, to TJ Purdy who helped us pick out some amazing photography books to give our display such a fascinating aesthetic touch! We are proud of our library assistants and hope you'll stop by to catch their work this month, again!  

Check out photos on our facebook page!

Click on each book to read why the book they picked inspired them.

What is Journalism Archive Management (JAM)?

Journalists and strategic communicators create large amounts of digital content. What happens to that content after its creation? Will it be discoverable next year? In five years?  

Journal Archive Management (JAM) provides a set of best practices for journalism and strategic communication students to preserve and manage their content long after it has been created.

Next time you publish: claim your rights

Your article has been accepted for publication in a journal and, like your colleagues, you want it to have the widest possible distribution and impact in the scholarly community. In the past, this required print publication. Today you have other options, like online archiving, but the publication agreement you’ll likely encounter will actually prevent broad distribution of your work.

You would never knowingly keep your research from a readership that could benefit from it, but signing a restrictive publication agreement limits your scholarly universe and lessens your impact as an author.

Why? According to the traditional publication agreement, all rights —including copyright — go to the journal. You probably want to include sections of your article in later works. You might want to give copies to your class or distribute it among colleagues. And you likely want to place it on your Web page or in an online repository if you had the choice. These are all ways to give your research wide exposure and fulfill your goals as a scholar, but they are inhibited by the traditional agreement. If you sign on the publisher’s dotted line, is there any way to retain these critical rights?

Yes. The SPARC Author Addendum is a legal instrument that modifies the publisher’s agreement and allows you to keep key rights to your articles. Learn more.
