In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of copyright ownership and will understand how to identify the copyrightable aspects of software.  They will identify licensing terms and practice identifying reliable sources of information on copyright ownership.  While this is not a substitute for legal advice or a primer on commercialization, participants will learn how to understand the basics of software ownership and their rights and obligations as software developers.

* This is a free and open workshop, but pre-registration is required for Zoom access. We’ll send out a Zoom link in the morning of the meeting.

 

Arnetta Girardeau is the Copyright and Information Policy Consultant at Duke University Libraries. She is the libraries’ first point of contact for copyright and related law questions and consultations and conducts outreach and education on copyright and connected issues.  She is a Duke alum (MA, Cultural Anthropology), and is also a graduate of Florida State (MSLIS), UNC School of Law (JD), and Harvard (AB, History).

West Campus

Duke University Libraries' Low Maintenance Book Club is now online! To close out the summer, we’re reading and discussing The Fifth Season, N.K. Jemisin’s Hugo award-winning dark fantasy/sci-fi novel. The first book in The Broken Earth Trilogy follows a mother searching for her daughter after an act of retaliation against an oppressive civilization sparks an apocalypse.

Readings and discussions will be split between two monthly meetings, the first of which is scheduled on Wednesday, July 29th at noon on Zoom and covers the prologue through chapter 15.

Copies of The Fifth Season can be found at Duke University Libraries and at Durham County Library.

Although the readings are longer, the low maintenance attitude is the same. Join as you like, discuss as much as you want--or just hang out and enjoy the company. Everyone is welcome. Just RSVP so we know how many to expect, and we’ll send out a Zoom link the morning of the meeting.

In this session, we will hear from one of the leading researchers at Duke, Dr. Stefan Zauscher, to learn about his research practices and tips. Dr. Zauscher has published over 177 articles in the top journals indexed in the Web of Science since 1996. Along the way, he has mentored and supervised many theses and dissertations over two decades at Duke. 

Please leave your questions for him in the comment box. We will pass them along to him before the workshop begins.

* This is a free and open workshop, but pre-registration is required for Zoom access. We’ll send out a Zoom link in the morning of the meeting.

 

Stefan Zauscher, Ph.D., is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, Biomedical Engineering, and Chemistry at Duke University. He also serves as the Director of the Duke Materials Initiative, leading a collaborative community of innovative and transformative materials scientists and engineers in their interdisciplinary endeavors. His lab (Zauscher lab) research lies at the intersection of surface and colloid science, polymer materials engineering, and biointerface science. These broad inquiries deal with fundamental behaviors of soft-wet materials on surfaces and interfaces. Dr. Zauscher joined Duke University in 2000 upon receiving his Ph.D. in Materials Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
