    Clark Copyright guide and resources 

    The Clark College Librarians have assembled a handy resource guide, Garbology Guide – Copyright and Resources, which includes copyright information, reference resources, and research topics by chapter.

    If you are considering integrating the Garbology book into your class, this is a must read.

    You may download the guide by right clicking on the link and saving it as a file to your computer.

      The University of New Mexico’s Logo Reading Experience, as they call their Garbology Common Read project, offers students PDF copies of whole chapters publicly available online. I’ve found other schools offering the same for their classes.

      So I have two questions:

      1. Have the Librarians been in contact with other schools using the book and doing Common Read Projects to discuss how they handled this issue, and how a university like New Mexico could publish a scanned copy of the book for students?

      2. Since scanned copies like this are online, what is the ethics of making these public chapters available to students?
