Copyright and Publishing Literacy for ETD Authors: Applying the Theft of the Mind Model
MetadataShow full item record
Thanks to a fruitful collaboration between the Scholarly Communication office in the University Libraries, and the Thesis Office in the Graduate School, ETD authors and their faculty advisers at Texas A&M University now enhance their understanding of copyright principles and publishing strategies through a series of successful workshops. These sessions include 'Copyright Essentials;' 'Fair Use: Using Copyrighted Material in Your Thesis or Dissertation;' Creative Commons Licensing: A Tool for Publishing Your Research Via Open Access;' and 'Managing Your Author Rights as You Publish.' The curriculum for each program is based on the Theft of the Mind model (see Clement and Brenenson, 2013) which was recently published by ACRL in the book Common ground at the nexus of information literacy and scholarly communication. This curriculum relies on a series of student learning outcomes (SLO's) derived from both on ACRL's Information Literacy Standards for Higher Education and their "Principles Supported" for Scholarly Communication. The elements of Theft of the Mind curriculum selected for graduate students aim to meet their needs both as ETD authors and as new professionals, scholars and practitioners as they enter the 21st century workplace.
