Join us for another event in the Future of Publishing series, a lunchtime conversation with Nancy Sims, Copyright Program Librarian at the University of Minnesota Libraries. Nancy will field your copyright questions and discuss copyright in the classroom, the rights of authors and creators, and publication contracts.

Nancy obtained her library degree from Rutgers and her law degree from the University of Michigan, where she also worked as an instructional technology librarian. As the Copyright Program Librarian at the University of Minnesota, Nancy advocates for policies and practices that support sustainable scholarship, democratic information access, and wide public cultural participation. She blogs at Copyright Librarian and tweets @CopyrightLibn.

This event is generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Broadening the Bridge Grant, and cosponsored by the Center for Innovation in the Liberal Arts at St. Olaf and the Perlman Center for Teaching and Learning (LTC) at Carleton.
