This coming Sunday July 12, I will presenting a paper at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, Ill. My presentation is entitled “Assumptions of Originality: Plagiarism, Patchwriting and the Engineering Master’s Thesis.” This presentation will be part of the ACRL Science Technology Section’s Research Forum, which will take place from 3:30-5:30pm that afternoon, in the Chicago Hilton Conference Room 4D.
You can view my presentation online here or by going to the following URL at Google Docs:
Three other papers will be given at that same research forum:
One Person, Many Responsibilities: An Analysis of Science and Technology Library Job Descriptions,” by John Meier, Pennsylvania State University.
“Rocket Science Can Be Understood: Librarians as STEM Faculty Outreach Partners,” by Melanie Sellar, Marymount College.
“The Case for a Scientific Institutional Repository: A View from the Laboratory,” by Cecelia Brown and June Abbas, University of Oklahoma, Norman.
If you a librarian who is interested in any of these issues, I hope you’ll stop by.
