University Libraries is happy to announce new Copyright Services to the university community. "Over the past few years, faculty and students have expressed a need for more in-depth support for copyright at Kent State, “said Cindy Kristoff, Head, Copyright and Document Services and nationally recognized copyright educator (pictured left). "Now the libraries and the university have quite rightly made a commitment to provide formal support to help faculty, staff and students navigate copyright law, licensing and permissions."
University Libraries is excited to launch the Digital Commons @ Kent State University Libraries, a new, open-access institutional repository highlighting research and scholarship at Kent State University. Powered by bepress, an online platform built by scholars to serve the needs of scholars, the Digital Commons will provide Kent State University with a range of innovative online publishing services, including an open access repository, online journal publishing, digital image galleries, and conference and event planning.
The Libraries will mark the 25th anniversary of the Borowitz Crime Collection at Kent State University through a series of exhibits and programs this year. Established here in 1989 by Albert Borowitz and Helen Osterman Borowitz, the collection includes both primary and secondary sources on crime, as well as works of literature based on true crime incidents. It includes materials on specific criminal cases which have had notable impacts on art, literature, and social attitudes, providing researchers with a wealth of material on those cases and their cultural effects.

University Libraries have completed the first stage of a multi-year initiative to digitize the long-running Daily Kent Stater campus newspaper, published under various titles since 1926. This project has two major goals: to provide full electronic access to all of the content of the newspaper through time (including ads and photographs), and by doing so also help to preserve very fragile original volumes of the paper. The digital archive allows users to view the paper without having to handle brittle and crumbling original newsprint.
