Rights and Reputations: Coaching Faculty to Maximize Impact

Visibility and impact are important to faculty authors, but many don’t understand how copyright transfer agreements may limit their ability to share their work. In this webinar, Ann Viera and Peter Fernandez of the Pendergrass Agriculture-Veterinary Medicine Library at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville describe an innovative outreach program they developed to coach authors on copyright and make it easy for faculty to maximize their visibility using SelectedWorks profile pages.

Topics include:

  • Helping faculty understand copyright transfer agreements
  • Explaining how to negotiate to retain more copyright assets
  • Teaching authors how to promote and share their work online
  • Coaching faculty on managing their online reputations
