U Publish @ Your Library: Rights and Wrongs of Copyright in Publisher Agreements

Date: Wednesday, October 20, 2021
Time: 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Register here for online workshop.

Traditional publishing agreements require that authors transfer their copyright to the publisher, unduly limiting options for online distribution, classroom use, and other purposes. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore how authors can grant some rights to publishers without signing away all their rights. Participants are encouraged to bring publisher agreements or copyright transfer agreements from the journals in which they publish.

You’ve done the research; now make sure your work gets noticed and makes an impact! Learn how to identify publishing venues, evaluate journals, and avoid “predatory publishers,” so that your research gets the visibility it deserves.

Workshops @ Your Library: PowerNotes

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for this event is limited to MU faculty, post-docs, and graduate students only. This workshop will be hosted in 114A Ellis Library and will not be broadcast via Zoom.

Date: Thursday, October 7, 2021
Time: 1pm – 2pm

The PowerNotes browser extension allows you to automatically capture text, take notes, and export citations in an outline format, all without ever leaving the article PDF or website you’re currently reading. Designed to seamlessly integrate research into writing, the outline you build in PowerNotes while researching can be exported into either a Word document or Excel file (perfect for those systematic review tables).

This workshop will focus on learning the basics of PowerNotes, identifying ways that it can make your research and writing easier. It will also briefly touch on ways this tool can be used for instruction, helping guide your students through interaction with readings and source material.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their personal laptops to this event.

Presented by Kimberly Moeller, Instructional Services Librarian, MU Libraries, and Christy Goldsmith, PhD, Assistant Director, Campus Writing Program.

Looking to add programming, scripting, automation, and data management skills to your research toolbox? Software Carpentry workshops return online for Fall! These hands-on workshops will focus on basic concepts and skills to help researchers perform their work in less time and with less pain with code (Python or R), version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. Pre-registration is required.

*Scheduling note: a full Software Carpentry workshop is usually 2 days face-to-face, covering Shell, Git, and Python or R. We have temporarily moved these workshops online and have separated the lessons into shorter sessions. To receive the content equivalent to a full Carpentries workshop, please register for a session of each lesson (Shell, Git, and Python or R) from the workshop calendar.

Citation management software helps researchers organize PDFs and notes and generate citations and bibliographies in a variety of publishing styles. The three citation managers the library teaches–Zotero, EndNote Basic and Mendeley–all have different strengths and weaknesses. This webinar previews each citation manager and explains the key features and differences between them.
