The Digital Identity of UNIVERSITY

With digital tools such as message boards, social networks, and search engines making University and its clients’ identities more public than ever, navigating the integrated media landscape for students and other members of University has become increasingly difficult. In a world where anonymous postings can have lasting effects on the professional and personal lives of students, and when University clients and their digital identities can be expressions of the University as a whole, this workshop will focus on how we begin to navigate this space and how we form the digital identity of University.

UNIVERSITY and its Library

Librarians are the navigators of knowledge and access at University. As search and content companies further engage in the realm of University and its Library, how do the roles of library, librarians, and library tools evolve, particularly into digital space? With libraries embracing new content delivery services, creating their own digital taxonomies and resources, and negotiating new relationships with users and vendors, what are the implications for our greatest repositories of knowledge? New tools for mining, mashing up, and networking knowledge are evolving everyday, so how do libraries interface with copyright issues while still forwarding the mission of scholarship? Is there a conflict?

Facilitators: David Weinberger (Berkman Fellow), Jessamyn C. West (Librarian), Cathy Norton (Woods Hole Institute Library)

Connecting UNIVERSITY and Localized Curricula

What is University’s role in guiding elementary education? Through empowering and enabling local teachers and volunteers in the world through collaborative development of teaching materials with luminaries in various academic disciplines, we can connect University to all children in the world, offering children who may not necessarily have access to traditional systems that would lead them to University the chance to connect nonetheless. With a project such as One Laptop per Child, and its initiative to facilitate a universal library, University can connect in more direct and actionable ways to the basic education movement, and address the needs of local students and teachers across different cultures.

Facilitators: SJ Klein (One Laptop Per Child), Ethan Zuckerman (Berkman Fellow), Harvard PITF Program

UNIVERSITY and the Digital Divide

There’s been much discussion of open access to information, but that doesn’t mean much to people who don’t have access to the network at all. This working group addressed the role University can play in addressing digital divide issues, and how those issues relate to the other topics of openness.

Alternative UNIVERSITY Models for Scholarly Publications

The ways in which professors, academics and students and professionals release their work into the world are changing. The old models of scholarly publishing, in which most work is turned over to a publishing company just to be purchased back by the Universities from which it originated, are challenged as the printing press is replaced by digital distribution. How can Universities progress open access models of scholarly publications through repositories, modes of licensing and support of open access journals?

UNIVERSITY Agenda for Fair Use

The Center for Social Media at American University and documentary filmmakers wrote a report on Best Practices in Fair Use to help navigate the waters of copyrighted materials and to determine when material use can be considered Fair Use. Much like documentarians, members of University communities are often riddled with questions as they create and express their work. How can we create Best Practices in Fair Use document for Universities similar to the one created for documentary filmmakers?
