    B. DR. PETER SUBER PRESENTS OPEN ACCESS SCHOLARSHIP
On Friday, November 8, from 12:00 - 1:00 pm the University of Maine Graduate School, Fogler Library DigitalCommons, and the School of Forest Resources are hosting a conversation with Dr. Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communications and the Harvard Open Access Project, in Nutting 100.

More information at <http://forest.umaine.edu/blog/2013/10/23/dr-peter-suber-presents-open-access-scholarship-policy-publication-peer-review-11813/>.

    C. PANEL DISCUSSION ON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY TOPICS
There will be a panel discussion on intellectual property topics for science and engineering students on Monday, November 11th, from 1:00 - 3:00 pm in the Library Classroom. Though this event is open to everyone, our primary audience is undergraduate students in science and engineering programs. Science and engineering students will benefit by learning about intellectual property topics and how they will interact with intellectual property as professionals. Having an understanding of intellectual property issues has been identified as a key skill in career and academic advancement, and lends a competitive edge when it comes to job placement. Following the one-hour panel discussion we will have a one-hour open forum to discuss particular concerns and answer questions. Questions received in advance will be addressed first. Complete details are posted at <http://www.library.umaine.edu/sec/wallace/ip_panel_2013.htm>.
RSVP required. For more information, contact Martin Wallace at <martin.wallace@maine.edu>.
