*NISO January Webinar*: *What Can I Do with This? Making It Easy for
Scholars & Researchers to Utilize Content *

For registration details and links to suggested reading, please visit the NISO
event page <http://www.niso.org/news/events/2017/webinars/jan11_webinar/>!

The first of the 2017 NISO Webinar series, this webinar will examine the
new perplexities associated with various forms of content and its
subsequent reuse in other contexts. What exactly is a permissible use? For
whom is that use allowed? Is there a timing factor involved? And how is one
supposed to know that? Speakers will address the many concerns of readers,
authors, funders, librarians, platform providers, and publishers.

*Date:* Wednesday, January 11, 2017

*Time:* 1:00pm – 2:30pm (Eastern)

*Featured Speakers and Topics:*

*Managing Access in This New World of Scholarly Research Results: Data,
Software, and Ongoing Change (Volatile Content)Maureen C. Kelly*, *Publishing

Maureen is the author of the ISQ article (in press): *The Ongoing
Challenges of Citing the Results of Scholarly Research*
Attendees are encouraged to read this (PDF) article in advance of the
January 11 webinar.

Scholarly communication has long relied on the journal and journal article
as the primary means of communicating research results, first in print and
next in electronic equivalents of print (PDFs and HTML). Delivery
infrastructures and business models have been built up to sustain this form
of communication and to support access and preservation. Maureen will
discuss changes underway to accommodate new content types – like data and
software - that live outside the journal article. All of the systems that
support delivery, discovery and preservation of journal articles need to be
re-envisioned to support these new content types. Maureen will discuss work
that is underway and the challenges that lie ahead.

*Balancing Author, Publisher, and Reader Rights and Reuse in an Open Access
*Darla Henderson*, *Assistant Director, Open Access Programs, ACS
Publications, American Chemical Society*

Attendees may want to visit and familiarize themselves with the useful
resource site, http://www.howcanishareit.com/, prior to the January 11
webinar event, as it will feature in Darla Henderson's presentation.

In an ever-changing environment where open access models stand alongside
subscriptions, publishers and service providers are handling reuse
inquiries for a collection of various open access licenses authors select.
Finding the balance between making it easy for scholars and researchers to
reuse content, and honoring the authors’ preferred license can be akin to
walking a tight rope. Darla will explore the key issues at stake for
publishers and authors, and point to important resources publishers
consider when determining rights and reuse for open access content. She
will share her own experience at ACS leading an effort to develop roadmaps
for the reuse of open access content.

*Introducing Technology-Mediated Content to the Mix*
*Nancy Kopans*, *Vice President & General Counsel, Ithaka*

Technology-mediated educational content—namely, Massive Open Online
Courses—introduces new issues for intellectual property arrangements in
higher education. Whereas traditionally, individual faculty assembled
syllabi and readings, prepared lectures, and owned copyright in their
journals articles and teaching materials, “authoring” online courses can
involve substantial, integrated university resources that go beyond those
required in a traditional classroom setting or in connection with creating
journals articles and text books. Likewise, the use of technology-mediated
content in the classroom can raise unique issues. Nancy will discuss the
challenging IP issues that can arise and recommended policies for enabling
academic institutions to create and promote these potentially valuable
teaching and learning resources.

Kopans is a co-author of the Ithaka publication, *An Academic Policy
Framework for Technology-Mediated Content.*
  Attendees are encouraged to read the report in advance of the January 11

*Discovering Re-Use Rights via CHORUS*
*Howard Ratner,* *Executive Director, CHORUS*

As a result of government and private funder mandates and gold and green
open access models, more content is publicly accessible than ever before.
Open questions still remain around what a researcher can do with articles
that they download. CHORUS is combining Crossref’s reuse license metadata
with funder identifiers and its own public accessibility audits as well as
other interconnected metadata to help researchers and their institutions.
Howard will explain how this space continues to evolve.
