The UCF Libraries in partnership with the Office of Technology Transfer is celebrating World Intellectual Property Day this year.

Bring questions for the experts at our table. Experts will include:
Patent Attorney Sandra Sovinski (1:00-2:00pm)
Licensing Associate John Miner (1:00-2:45pm)
Scholarly Communication Librarian Sarah Norris (2:30-3:00pm)
Patent and Trademark Librarian Missy Murphey (1:00-3:00pm)
How much do you know about fair use? If you are a student, you probably benefit from it every day, sometimes without realizing it. When does fair use apply to what you do? Here are some examples (via ARL’s infographic):
Writing papers with quotes cited from other works
Posting a copy of a news article to Canvas
Searching Google Books for a page containing a certain quote
Forwarding an email with photos attached
Posting a short clip from a TV show onto Facebook
Taking a selfie with a Star Wars advertisement in the background
Writing a chapter of fan fiction and posting it online
The UCF Libraries’ Office of Scholarly Communication provides support for researchers at UCF. Along every step of the way, services are offered to facilitate your research plan, project, publication, and digital scholarship efforts.
Overwhelmed by your literature review? Meet with a librarian for in-depth assistance related to locating relevant materials and managing your citations. If you have never tried RefWorks or EndNote, let us show you their propensity for disentangling the research process.

Before you start accumulating data, let us help you consider options that will save you time and minimize stress throughout the research planning process. (more…)
