The Scholarly Communications Office hosts or co-hosts training sessions to suit the needs of faculty, staff, and students at Carolina about copyright, the publishing process, or other topics about sustainable and discoverable scholarship. Please contact us if you would like to schedule a workshop.

Some of our past events have included choosing journals to fit your work, maximizing impact, open access publishing, and librarian communities of practice.

As a culmination to a three part workshop, graduate students in the School of Information and Library Science created a zine about open access.

Here are some related workshop subjects that we’ve found are popular:

  • Reading and understanding your publication contract
  • Copyright basics for teaching, publishing, and conference presentations, including using images and video
  • Scholarly sharing: what may I share, when, and how?
  • Open Access publishing options and their implications
  • Author branding to make yourself more discoverable

At Carolina, we celebrate annual national and international events, such as Open Access Week and Fair Use Week. Throughout these weeks, we schedule informative and fun events to involve the campus, including speaker presentations, public domain movie screenings, boardgame nights, parody button-making popups in the library.

In the community, we have been involved in preparing and serving the Triangle Scholarly Communication Institute and the Library Copyright Institute, among others.
