Library Copyright Experts across the nation have put together a helpful Public Statement: Fair Use and Emergency Remote Teaching and Research document for us to use as a guide. One of the services they are offering is Copyright Office Hours that I can use to get answers for you if you need more guidance. Feel free to reach out to me with these types of questions, and I can go to the experts for support.
I personally am finding the Facebook group Pandemic Pedagogy full of helpful tips! If there is ever the time for community (even a digital one), this is it. I'm here for troubleshooting, brainstorming, and lamenting.
We knew it was coming and it's HERE! Purdue OWL has updated its online materials to support the 7th Edition of the APA manual. Users can still access the 6th edition, but they have to read directions. And let's be honest, many of us in academia are notoriously bad at reading and following directions (for example, are you still reading this correspondence?)!
Many of you have students that rely on Purdue OWL, it would be worth your time to show them this change, especially if you are looking for 100% complaint formatting and citation style. At the top of each page, Purdue OWL has made a heading that clarifies if the user is viewing APA 7 or APA 6. If the user finds themselves on the wrong page, it's an easy link to the other manual.
While my office offers a calming and quiet place to work through a research question, folks have to go out of their way to meet me in my space.
By moving some of my hours out and around campus, I hope to bring my reference skills to the spaces where collaboration and brainstorming are already happening.
During weeks classes are in session, you can find me
I also will hold pop-up reference when a need arises and scheduling allows. If I'm around campus, do not hesitate to "ask me anything."
