Negotiating Publishing Contracts: Monographs

copyright symbol

Which terms of your publishing agreement might you want to negotiate? How? When you’re working on behalf of a publisher, what terms do you seek? Explore these and other questions about publishing contracts in a workshop hosted by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office. After a brief overview of negotiation techniques and the law in this area, participants will negotiate mock publishing contracts. The group will then reconvene to debrief those negotiations.

Please register via TeachTech or by contacting Ana at anaenriq@umich.edu. Participants are encouraged to bring their lunches to eat during the workshop. A light dessert will be provided.

Shapiro Design Lab

The Shapiro Design Lab is an ever-evolving experimental space in the Library focused on creating engaged learning opportunities and experiences across research, artistic, and teaching projects. We are comprised of three learning communities (Interns, Residents, and Developers) and three spaces (PIE Space, Media Production Rooms, and Workshop), which feature a variety of tools: 3D printers, audio/video hardware and software, letterpress, prototyping supplies, and more.

For the 2017-18 Academic Year, the Lab will focus on three themes:

Citizen Lab, in partnership the School of Information's Citizen Interaction Design (CID) program, will support civic technology and citizen science projects here on campus and in conjunction with communities within and beyond Ann Arbor.

Game Lab, which will serve as a hub for game developers, designers, and scholars on Central Campus, in conjunction with the Computer Video Game Archive on North Campus.

Library Lab, which will experiment with tools, services, and applications for the Library itself, in order to better understand the possibilities of how people can engage with the Library in all its forms.

We encourage you to schedule a consultation or sign up for our mailing list. If you have other questions about the Lab or what happens here, please email shapirodesignlab@umich.edu.
