Thanks for a job well done, truly..I could not have done this alone and you are one outstanding group of colleagues! I doubted it could be done and you proved me wrong. ALL of the credit goes to YOU!
Thanks from Donna Bevers, Fundraising Chair, LSSC, to each individual who contributed in ANY way to the LSSC Halloween Bake Sale. It took all of us working together to make this sale a tremendous success. In addition to support staff who contributed baked goods, a special 'thank you' goes to three local bakeries who are all avid community supporters. We received cookies & brownies from Daily Bread, cookies from Great Harvest Bread Co., and scones (as well as two hand-delivered freshly-brewed pots of gourmet coffee) from Red Chair Bakery. The generosity of the management and staff of these three establishments was overwhelming when they learned that a portion of these proceeds will go The Community Kitchen and Shelter Inc. They were all eager to assist us even though they already contribute daily to either The Community Kitchen or Hoosier Hills Food Bank. With so many donations, we were able to exceed our goal of $150 earned. A quick count shows we made over $250! Who knows, may be this year we can support the Kitchen for 2 months instead of just one! Also, only one small box of goodies remained (mostly candy & cookies) after the sale. That was taken to the Kitchen to be divided among the children there and the shelter located next door.
Again I thank you on behalf of the Indiana University Libraries Support Staff Council. We appreciate your support!

6. WORKSHOP COMING NOVEMBER 10TH
"Copyright for Medical Education and Research: What it Means to You" is the title of workshop being held Friday, November 10, 1995 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at University Library, Room #1116. This workshop is being sponsored by the Indiana University School of Medicine's Division of Continuing Medical Education.
COURSE DESCRIPTION-Although this program is structured for Medical Center needs, most of the issues will be relevant to faculty, staff, and students in any discipline. All members of the university community are welcome. Copyright issues in teaching and research arise in the familiar situations of photocopying and reproducing textbook images onto slides. Newer technologies such as the World Wide Web, videotapes, and distance learning are stirring new copyright concerns. Faculty and staff are also the creators of new publications, and the process of choosing a publisher for articles and other works raises crucial copyright dilemmas that often go unnoticed until they become a serious problem.
This workshop will acquaint you with the building blocks of copyright rules and give you the tools necessary for addressing copyright issues in a manner that best serves your needs and the needs of higher education.
COURSE OBJECTIVES - At the conclusion of this workshop participants should be able to: recognize that they are the owners of numerous copyrighted works with potential value for higher education; work with the fundamentals of "fair use" to determine whether permission is necessary for using someone else's materials in teaching and research; realize that copyright is not a simplistic regime of property rights; but instead allows for great flexibility to address diverse needs; and identify sources of information for help with copyright questions.
PRESENTER - Kenneth Crews is an associate professor in the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis and in the IU School of Library and Information Science. He is also director of the Copyright Management Center at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis. Professor Crews bring a variety of academic and professional experiences to his diverse duties at the university.
In 1990 Kenneth Crews began his academic career as an associate professor of business law at San Jose State University in San Jose, California. Professor Crews' principal research interest has been the relationship of copyright law to the needs of higher education. His doctoral dissertation analyzed copyright policies from universities throughout the United States. That work received the annual dissertation award from the Association of College and Research Libraries and the Association for the Study of Higher Education. The work also became the foundation of Professor Crews' most recent book, Copyright, Fair Use, and the Challenge for Universities: Promoting the Progress of Higher Education, published by The University of Chicago Press in October, 1993. His publications have appeared in a wide range of law and library journals, and he is a frequent speaker at conferences where copyright and fair use are critical issues.
REGISTRATION - These is no registration fee for this workshop. To register, please call the Medical Education Resources Program at 274-8353 or send e-mail to the Copyright Management Center at <email@example.com>.
7. OCLC BROCHURES
Several times a year we receive from INCOLSA multiple copies of informational brochures about OCLC products and services, about 1-2 pages each. Most of them are of interest to only a few people in the IU Libraries. We have been selectively sending them to various individuals who make decisions about OCLC services. We are looking for a way to distribute these materials which is more efficient for us and which will insure that we are identifying all those who are interested in receiving them.
Beginning now, we will place a notice in the IUL News announcing receipt of each of these brochures. They will be kept in the MPS Department for one month. If you would like a copy of one, please contact Anne McGreer, MPS Department, Library E350, IUB (phone: 855-1666 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
The recent brochures are: What's New at OCLC, Timely Tracking of ILL Activity ... ILL Monthly Activity Report, OCLC GOVDOC Service, The EPIC Service from OCLC, PapersFirst and ProceedingsFirst
