This webcast series, organized by the ACRL Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy task force, will focus on practical approaches to building and strengthening connections between scholarly communication and information literacy in academic libraries.  These webcasts build on the work introduced in the ACRL white paper, Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy: Creating Strategic Collaborations for a Changing Academic Environment.
