Throughout this Spring semester, we will be highlighting information about finding, organizing, analyzing, managing, displaying, and preserving your research data. See this week's featured data information below.
WHAT: IES will host a webinar related to research funding opportunities. This webinar will provide a general overview of IES, NCSER, and NCER research topics, the IES goal structure, and the peer review process.
WHEN: March 29, 2012 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm
REGISTRATION: Required These fill up quickly!
WHO: Madelyn Wessel, J.D., Special Advisor to the University Librarian and Liaison to the General Counsel, University of Virginia.
WHAT: A brown bag lunch, presentation, and Q&A for students focusing on your rights as authors with regard to intellectual property, copyright, and patent issues. These rights are inherent in all forms of publication including dissertations (think about the questions you might have if you opt for the 3 paper manuscript dissertation or you are including graphs from journal articles) , journal articles, books, and research projects. Cookies and drinks will be provided.
WHEN: Tuesday, April 2nd, Noon
WHERE: Scholars' Lab Classroom in Alderman Library. Alderman Library is building #1 on this map.
The Scholars' Lab is located on the 4th floor (West wing) of Alderman Library.
WHY: Faculty aren't the only ones to have questions about copyright, intellectual property, and patents that affect their research projects, publishing endeavors, and potential income opportunities. These questions play out in the print and the online world for graduate students as well. Recently, a UVa grad student wondered if she could provide Open Access to her dissertation and how that would affect her copyrights with regard to her dissertation. A TA wanted to know about online teaching and who owns the intellectual property involved in creating an online course. Then there is the question of who owns the intellectual rights to student work. These and other topics of interest are certain to be on the lunch menu at this brown bag session. So please come, enjoy the conversations, and seek answers to your most perplexing copyright, IP, and patent questions.
We also encourage Curry Labs and Centers to send a representative.

EINSTEIN'S MANUSCRIPTS NOW ONLINE
The Einstein Archives Online Website provides the first online access to Albert Einstein’s scientific and non-scientific manuscripts held by the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It also enables access to the Einstein Archive Database, a comprehensive source of information on all items in the Albert Einstein Archives.
It includes a handwritten explanation of his theory of relativity and its summarizing equation EMC2, private correspondence to his lovers, and a collection of fan mail. A six-year old girl wrote in large block print, "I saw your picture in the paper, I think you ought to have your haircut." In another note, a researcher wrote, "I'm making a scientific survey to determine why genius so often tends to long hair."
Stich.it is a service that converts any set of links on the Internet into a slideshow-like experience that is a faster, easier way for you and others to surf the Web. The links that you "stich" together can include Web pages, video, music, photos and more. Check out the web site's FAQs for examples. Just imagine the possibilities when working with students.
