Academic and research librarians increasingly recognize scholarly communication as a core competency of the profession. Whether helping researchers meet their funder’s mandates for public access and data sharing, guiding responsible copyright practice, or supporting new types of scholarship and instruction, librarians are leading the change across campus and around the world. ACRL empowers our community in accelerating the transformation of the scholarly communication system by taking its popular workshop “Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement” on the road. This day-long workshop, led by two expert presenters, has been updated with a series of targeted modules that reflect the most exciting and pressing issues in the field today.
About the Workshop
The workshop will help participants in very practical ways, such as preparing for library staff or faculty outreach (i.e., working with faculty on publication agreements, interacting in their roles as liaisons, and developing programming for faculty and/or graduate students), contextualizing collection development decisions to internal and external stakeholders, and initiating or supporting new models for scholarly communication in their libraries.
The particular focus areas of June’s workshop will be:
Measuring Research Impact
Copyright in Making and Sharing Scholarship
Outreach and Programming
