Scholarworks@UMassAmherst is one way the campus supports the open communication of the scholarship at UMass Amherst. Using this digital technology and the web has its benefits but its use also raises many questions including, “Have I been losing the rights to my own work?” “How can I keep my author rights?” and, "If my work isn't online, is it invisible?"
For this 3rd installation of the Digital Quadrangle Series, we’re particularly pleased to have Dr. Siva Vaidhyanathan, associate professor of Media Studies and Law at the University of Virginia, join us for his talk, “The Googlization of Everything.” The program will also include a faculty panel presentation of Scholarworks implementations, remarks on the Carnegie Classification on Community Engagement, and a facilitated luncheon that will result in action plans for keeping your author rights and publishing in an online environment, addressing concerns about IP, and adopting ScholarWorks.
Faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to attend. The event is open to the public although the luncheon is for campus members only.
