A lot can happen after work is published. Work can progress, leaving findings supported, out-of-date, or refuted. Others can have questions for the authors, or identify problems. The records of a range of these post-publication activities find their way into PubMed. Join us next Wednesday to hear Hilda Bastian, from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), discuss the changing visibility and accessibility of post-publication activity in PubMed in her presentation, “What’s New in Post-Publication Activities in PubMed”

The webinar is an hour long and is eligible for 1 MLA CE credit either for attending the live session or viewing the recording.

Fair Use Myths and Facts

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

In conjunction with Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017, the Association of Research Libraries is releasing an infographic that refutes 10 popular misperceptions about fair use. Fair use and fair dealing are vitally important rights for everybody, everywhere — students, faculty, librarians, journalists, and all users of copyrighted material. These doctrines provide balance to the copyright system by allowing the use of copyrighted resources without permission from the rightsholder under certain circumstances, thereby promoting creative progress and accommodating freedom of expression. See: “Fair Use Myths & Facts” infographic (PDF).

Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week is an annual, community celebration coordinated by the Association of Research Libraries to promote the opportunities presented by fair use and fair dealing, highlight successful stories, and explain these doctrines. Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week 2017 is being observed this week, Monday, February 20, through Friday, February 24. Visit fairuseweek.org to participate or find additional resources on popular topics from this week and previous Fair Use Weeks, including copyright policy and the nature of copyright, factors of fair use, government blogs, digital materials, innovation, fair use in the media, scholarly publishing and open access, educational uses, and case studies.

Join us for the next PNR Rendezvous webinar session where Kate Orville who is the Co-director of the Washington State Medical Home Partnerships Project for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (MHPP) housed at the University of Washington’s Center on Human Development and Disability.

Learn how primary health care providers and clinics are changing to become “patient-centered medical homes” and the opportunities this opens up for  libraries, public health, early learning and other community partners to become part of the bigger “medical home neighborhood.” Libraries support children’s healthy development through typical story-time offerings but also by collaborating with local initiatives to promote developmental milestones awareness, health and developmental screenings, and connecting parents with reliable health information and linkages with community services.  Using examples from Washington State and nationally, the presenter will share resources and strategies available to libraries anywhere to improve the health and well-being of young children and families in your community.  Resources you can access will include, the CDC’s Learn the Signs,  Act Early; Birth to Five: Watch Me Thrive; and Reach Out and Read and its 5,500 medical clinics encouraging early literacy. Find out where to refer families locally with a variety of concerns.  Bring your questions and experience to share!
