- Going viral: Copyright lessons from Max the Cat by Rebecca S. Wingo, Alexis Logsdon, Christopher Schommer. This starts "On November 29, 2017, a photo of a sign asking library patrons “please do not let in the cat” went viral. It wasn’t long before the Internet lore surrounding Max the Cat exceeded the scope of the original post." One of the lessons is "If students see your slides without citation, and yet you dock their final grade because they didn’t cite their sources, then you’re not modeling good behavior"
