On one of my quick treks through the Web I came across a really interesting blog site, Networked Researcher. I think it has lots to offer – not just to researchers – but to all of us in HE so I’m going to put it in my blog roll. The post that caught my eye was this one on the effects of blogging, The Suprising Effects of Blogging for Impact.
I think I’ve mentioned the Copyright Licencing Agency before on this blog (I get so confused [that is supposed to elicit an ahhh from you]). I just thought I ought to mention that they have just put up their beta version of, “Does my CLA Licence cover this title?“. It does what it says it does – put in what type of licence you have (in our case Higher Education), what you want to use if for, the name of the publication, the ISBN and the country of publication – then just click the search button and it will tell you if you are able to use the work/creation or not. Now that’s what I call neat. I would think our Librarians will like it too. Just think of all those questions it will save 🙂
ok my lovelies I hope these little tips help you out and that you’ll all help our new students. I’ll chat with you all again tomorrow.
