And, if you're not familiar with Welcome to Night Vale, here's your homework: Episode 1.
Anyway, I've made my appointment to meet with Kean research librarian Linda Cifelli on Thursday, October 12th at 2:45 p.m. I've thought about what I want to ask her, and I emailed her the following question:
I would like to learn more about finding public domain books online and/or about the copyright laws surrounding the usage of copyrighted texts for research purposes. My thesis is centered around using computer programs/tools in order to analyze literature, so you can see why it's important for me to understand fair use, and to know where to find public domain texts.I'm interested to see what she can show me, and I'm hopeful that the Kean library will prove to be a valuable resource!
