Information Superhighway or End of the Road? Implications of the Compulsory Electronic Deposit of Theses

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For both MFA and Literary Translation students, copyright is increasingly an issue as more and more emphasis is placed on electronic deposit of theses as an institutional requirement. Publicly funded research must be made publicly available, we are told, and the single-copy-available-by-interloan is no longer deemed to fulfil this obligation. The aim of this panel is to explore the options currently available to students within this framework, looking at both national (US) and international institutions (NZ, Australia, the UK, South Africa). Key questions will include: copyright – whose responsibility? financial implications; making the case for withholding material; along with other issues raised by the audience.
