    Lecture Title: "After the Internet"

    The Internet bubble has burst. The Internet is boring. Even The Economist is
    reduced to devoting a special section to the wireless Internet in order to
    gain and hold its readers' attention. This is an opportunity for serious
    thought and action about the integration of information technology and
    information science in the humanistic organon. How are we different because
    we live in this wired world? How are we not different? What is reasonable to

    [Please excuse the inevitable duplication of this notice.] ANNOUNCEMENT AND INVITATION

    The Center for Intellectual Property at the University of Maryland University College is hosting a seminar titled:

    Copyright Management in Higher Education: Access, Control and Use April 4th - 5th 2002. http://www.umuc.edu/distance/odell/cip/copy_manage2002/

    The digital age has greatly increased concerns about ownership, access, and control of copyrighted information. As substantial users and creators of copyrighted information, colleges and universities must develop mechanisms that effectively manage information on the networked campus. Protective technologies are being developed that hold the promise of perfect control and the peril of substantially limited access to information. Comprehensive intellectual property policies are needed to provide clear guidelines for ownership and proper use of information. Moreover, stakeholders in higher education should understand the substantial changes being made in federal information policy that will affect colleges and universities in the twenty-first century.

    The Keynote speaker will be Laura "Lolly" Gasaway, Director, Law Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Intellectual Property Scholar, Center for Intellectual Property, University of Maryland University College.

    Additional confirmed presenters and panelist include:

    - Dan L. Burk, Faculty Associate, Center for Bioethics; Professor, University of Minnesota Law School; and Associate Director, Joint Degree Program in Law, Health, and the Life Sciences. - Kim Kelley, Associate Provost and Executive Director of the Center for Intellectual Property, University of Maryland University College - Todd Kelley, Associate Provost and Librarian of the College, St. Mary's College of Maryland - Arnold P. Lutzker, Partner, Lutzker & Lutzker LLP - Carol Risher, Senior Vice President-Business Development Savantech, Inc. - Siva Vaidhyanathan, Assistant Professor, School of Library and Information Studies, University of Wisconsin at Madison - John C. Vaughn, Executive Vice President, Association of American Universities - Fred (Rick) W. Weingarten, Director of the Office for Information Technology Policy of the American Library Association - Dr. Larry Wilt, Director of the Albin O.
