Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement

ACRL is extending the reach of this popular workshop, led by two expert presenters at locations across the country. The content is updated annually to meet the evolving needs of the community. Bring this one-day workshop, at full cost, to your campus, chapter, or consortia year round. Additionally, since 2009 ACRL has offered a subsidy on a competitive basis for five hosts each year. We encourage librarians to make use of these materials to enhance their own knowledge or adapt them to offer related workshops on their own campuses. Presentations:

ACRL's Scholarly Communication Committee is looking at if/how to offer again in the not too distant future, but there is nothing concrete to announce yet.

ACRL offers scholarly communication 101 road show again in 2010

ACRL is taking scholarly communication on the road again in 2010 with “Scholarly Communication 101: Starting with the Basics.” Recognizing that scholarly communication issues are central to the work of all academic librarians and all types of institutions, ACRL is pleased to offer this free half day workshop to libraries across the country. Led by two expert presenters, this structured interactive overview of the scholarly communication system highlights individual or institutional strategic planning and action. Four modules focus on new methods of scholarly publishing and communication, copyright and intellectual property, economics and open access.

The application will be available Tuesday, January 5, 2010, and institutions interested in hosting “Scholarly Communication 101″ should apply by Monday, February 8, 2010. Hosts must partner with, and invite staff from, at least one other institution. Complete details are on the ACRL Web site
