The ACRL Scholarly Communication Committee has selected five sites from 46 applications to host the “Scholarly Communication 101: Starting with the Basics” workshop this summer. Recognizing that scholarly communication issues are central to the work of all academic librarians and all types of institutions, ACRL is underwriting the costs of delivering this proven content by sending expert presenters on the road. The 46 applications represented nearly 150 colleges, universities, consortia and library networks from more than 30 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.
The institutions selected are:
– ACRL Louisiana Chapter, Baton Rouge, La.
– Auraria Library, Denver
– State University of New York at Buffalo Libraries, Buffalo, N.Y.
– University of Puerto Rico at MayagÃ¼ez, MayagÃ¼ez, Puerto Rico
– Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis
The Scholarly Communication 101 workshop focuses on new methods of scholarly publishing and communication, open access and openness as a principle, copyright and intellectual property and economics, providing a foundational understanding for attendees. Led by two expert presenters, this structured interactive overview of the scholarly communication system supports individual or institutional strategic planning and action. Host sites are partnering with other institutions in their area to extend the reach to as diverse an audience as possible.
