Ebooks from the libraries & beyond spring, 2013 tech in-ed

  1. 1. 1Ebooks from the Libraries’ Collections and BeyondLauren Kehoe, Librarian – McEntegart Hall Library – lkehoe@sjcny.edu – 718-940-5877 –http://www.sjcny.edu/LibraryEbooks come in many formats and from different locations. Some can be accessed for free on the Internet; others have to be purchased from publishers ordistributors. The Library subscribes to several ebook databases, giving you and your students access to quality academic materials. Some books have to be readonline, while others can be downloaded to devices using various apps and other software. As this technology continues to evolve, uniformity should becomemore commonplace, but for the time being, we must learn how to use the various configurations available to us.Ebooks can be used for:Q. How can I use the Library’s ebooks in my course?A.There are a variety of ways to incorporate the Library’s ebooks (as well as other ebooks from other locations) into your course. You can:Embed links and portions of books in your Blackboard course **Remember! Since the library’s content is licensed, you will need to put the EZProxy URLat the beginning of any link you use: http://access.sjcny.edu/login?url=Link toebooks through the Library’s Ereserve system (contact a librarian for more details): http://ereserves.sjcny.eduEncourage students to use ebooks when they are doing research for assignmentsQ. What are the copyright considerations of using ebooks?A.Fair Use, according to CUNY’s (C)opyright Center: “Section 107 provides that the Fair Use of copyrighted work for purposes such as criticism, comment, newsreporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.” Several factors must be takeninto consideration. More information can be found here: www.cuny.edu/libraries/services/copyright(For most of your purposes, Fair Use will apply).Somebest practices to avoid copyright infringement are:If the material comes from the Library’s databases (most offer a “share” or “permalink” feature), always do your best to link out to the original material(i.e. providing a link to the database with the EZproxy – link provided above). If you are using a small percentage of the material—I’ve heard the figure10% of the whole material as a guide, but there is no exact figure—then you can post a PDF or photocopy of that material on a password protected site(like Blackboard or Ereserves), as long asyou put a copyright noticeand provide the appropriate bibliographic information (i.e. author, publisher, etc.)In some circumstances, permission must be requested from copyright holder. For more specific guidance and additional questions, contact a librarian.Some of the “free” books available are in the Public Domain (their copyright has expired, been forfeited, or is not applicable). These materials can be used, butas a general practice, do your best to cite where the material comes from.ResearchClass ReadingAssignmentsPersonalEnjoymentandEdification
