“Copyright and Your Thesis or Dissertation,” an Upcoming Library Workshop

Who owns the copyright to my dissertation?  When using an image from another work, do I need copyright permission? If I do, how much does it cost?  What are the benefits of making my thesis open access? Get the answers to these and other questions at the library workshop, Copyright and Your Thesis or Dissertation.

This workshop will examine the role U.S. Copyright Law plays in the thesis or dissertation writing and publishing processes. The use of copyrighted material, publishing agreements and the role of the Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech repository will be explored.  

Please join us on Tuesday, October 6 at 1:00p.m. in room 242 of the library. No registration is required. For questions, please contact Nora Allred at nsallred@mtu.edu or 487-3208.


EndNote Workshops at the Van Pelt & Opie Library

unnamed

Learn how EndNote can help you easily create and manage bibliographic information and incorporate references into your writing. EndNote also offers a relatively easy way for faculty to upload citations into Digital Measures.

Sessions will be held on Tuesday, September 22 in Library 242:

1:00-2:15 p.m. EndNote Basic

This workshop will introduce users to creating and managing references using EndNote. No prior knowledge of EndNote is necessary. In this workshop, participants will learn how to create an EndNote Library, add and annotate full-text documents and create custom and smart groups.

2:15-3:00 p.m. EndNote Cite While You Write

Learn to incorporate your EndNote Library citations into a written MS Word document in the particular style your manuscript requires. Attendees will also learn how to locate and import specialized output styles. Attending EndNote Basic, or prior knowledge of building and managing an EndNote library, is recommended.

Additional sessions will be offered on September 30th and October 22nd, with EndNote Basic from 5:00-6:15 p.m. and EndNote Cite While You Write from 6:15-7:00 p.m. All EndNote sessions will take place in Library 242.

Michigan Tech licenses EndNote at no charge to all active students, faculty and staff. Additionally, a free version of EndNote is available for use post-graduation. Visit the library’s EndNote LibGuide to download the software and get a sneak peek at what EndNote can do for you!

Our instruction room has EN X7.4 on Windows workstations. Attendees may bring their own laptops with EN X7.4 downloaded prior to the session.
