Notice and Notice: Cut and Paste to Automate

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Session abstract: 
At Ryerson University in the last year we went from our Notice and Notice response being a thankless job of cut and paste being sent out by hand by the Copyright Librarian, to an partially automated database system programmed and supported by our Computing Services department with the Copyright Librarian in a reviewing role. There were issues along the way - lost data and blackouts of data so no user information could be retrieved, problems with environments on campus that did not retain user information or would not release information, daylight saving time making for misread time stamps, responding to student and faculty reaction to the notices, reviewing the copyright notice email account to
see if creators were following up on requests, follow ups regarding data retention schedules, tracking trends in volume of notices and looking for trends in who was sending notices out, as well as liaising with legal staff as needed.

Learning objectives:
  • Processes needed to properly implement an automated notice and notice regime in a higher education
  • institution.
  • Trouble shooting potential technical issues and follow-up procedures.
  • Tips on dealing with a higher education community response to receiving notices.
  • Tips on dealing with copyright creators follow-up.
