KU Libraries, in partnership with the Hall Center for the Humanities and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, will host internet law expert and open access advocate Michael W. Carroll for a presentation on intellectual property and using it to increase visibility to scholarship at the Kansas Union on April 29.
Michael Carroll is a founding member of Creative Commons Inc., a global organization that provides users with standardized copyright tools that enable legal sharing of cultural, educational, scientific and other copyrighted works. He is currently professor of law at American University, in addition to serving as director of the university’s program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property. Professor Carroll will discuss how copyright applies to works of scholarly research and how an open model facilitates cooperative approaches to both teaching and research, particularly in the humanities.
The presentation is open to the public and will begin at 3:30 in Alderson Auditorium at the Kansas Union. For more info, visit the libraries' event listing.
