SUBJECT:    May 31, 2006 Faculty Lunch

The UCSD Libraries, Academic Senate Committee on Academic Personnel, and Academic Senate Committee on Libraries are pleased to invite all faculty to the fifth and last in our lunch-time series:

Publish and/or Perish: Changes in Scholarly Communication

A few spaces remain in our fifth lunch which will focus on the importance of author copyright. It has been commonplace for faculty to sign over all their copyrights to the journal who publishes their research. Now, the advent of electronic publication is forcing many to question the wisdom of that practice.

Once again we will hear from an expert in the area. Michael Carroll, Associate Professor at the Villanova University School of Law, and a member of the Board of Directors of Creative Commons, Inc. will address:

"Valuing and Managing Your Copyright in Scholarly Articles."

Wednesday, May 31, 2006
12:00 - 1:30p.m.
UCSD Faculty Club Lounge

Michael W. Carroll is an Associate Professor at the Villanova University School of Law, and he serves on the Board of Directors of Creative Commons, Inc. His research and teaching interests are in the areas of intellectual property law and cyber law. Prior to joining the Villanova faculty, Professor Carroll practiced law at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering in Washington, D.C., specializing in intellectual property and e-commerce matters. He also served as a law clerk to Judge Judith W. Rogers, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Judge Joyce Hens Green, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Professor Carroll received his A.B., with general honors, from the University of Chicago and his J.D. magna cum laude from the Georgetown University Law Center.

Please join us on May 31. There is no cost for the lunch and seminar but an RSVP is requested to Jennifer Tom (jtom@ucsd.edu) by May 24, 2006. We look forward to seeing you!
