Interested in hosting ACRL 2016 scholarly communication road show workshop? Identify collaborators here!by Kara Malenfant-IL (staff) on Tue, Oct 6, 2015 at 02:28 pm
Today’s academic and research librarians increasingly act as change agents in the higher education community. Nowhere is this more true than in the realm of open access and scholarly communication. To help empower our community in accelerating the transformation of the scholarly communication system, ACRL is once again taking its popular workshop “Scholarly Communications: From Understanding to Engagement” on the road to five locations in 2016. The day-long workshop is led by two expert presenters at locations across the country, and the content is updated annually to meet the evolving needs of the community.
The program continues its cost-sharing model as ACRL is committed to underwriting the bulk of the expense for delivering the road show, and the cost for successful host institutions is $2,000. The application to host is now available. Apply by Tuesday, November 10, 2015, at 5pm Central. Find out more on the program website.
In addition to the competitive subsidized version, you may bring this one-day workshop, at full cost, to your campus, chapter, or consortia year round.
If you are interested in applying to host the subsidized version of the workshop and would like to find other interested institutions in your area, you may publicly express your intent to apply by posting a comment in the discussion below. We hope this aids you in identifying potential collaborators so that you can consider submitting a joint application.
