Discussion Interested in hosting ACRL 2018 scholarly communication workshop? Identify collaborators here!

by Chase Ollis (staff) on Wed, Oct 18, 2017 at 09:23 am

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 change across campus and around the world.

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 change across campus and around the world. ACRL empowers our community in accelerating the transformation of the scholarly communication system with its popular workshop “Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement.” To emphasize scholarly communication’s critical importance to the profession, ACRL is once again underwriting the cost to bring this workshop to five locations in 2018.

With newly updated content, this day-long workshop, led by two expert presenters, offers a series of targeted modules that reflect the most exciting and pressing issues in the field today. Participants will engage in a structured interactive program that focuses on a variety of themes, and selected hosts will be asked to choose topics that are of greatest interest to their communities so that the expert presenters can offer a deep dive into specific content areas.

This program is offered using a cost-sharing model where ACRL covers the bulk of the expense for delivering the workshop, leaving a cost of only $2,000 for successful host institutions. The application to host is now available. Apply by Friday, November 17, 2017, at 5pm Central. See the workshop webpage for full details and FAQs about applying to host the subsidized version of the workshop.

In addition to the competitive subsidized version, the Scholarly Communication workshop is part of ACRL’s slate of day-long RoadShows that can be brought year-round at full cost to your campus, chapter, or consortia. Please contact Chase Ollis, ACRL Program Officer, at collis@ala.org with questions or to discuss dates and locations, pricing, and for complete workshop details.

If you are interested in applying to host the subsidized version of the scholarly communication 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.
