Scholarly Communications:
from Understanding to Engagement
Friday, September 30, 2016

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 and The College at Brockport are pleased to offer a day-long workshop.

Our Workshop Presenters

AMY BUCKLAND is the Institutional Repository Manager at the University of Chicago, and Chair of the ACRL’s Research and Scholarly Environment Committee. Previously she was Coordinator of Scholarly Communications at McGill University. Her professional life revolves around open access initiatives, publishing support, copyright, and research data services.

JARON PORCIELLO is the Associate Director for Research Data Engagement for International Programs, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, at Cornell University. She is interested in how we collect, curate, and use data to solve problems as well as how we build a culture of data sharing across international science collaborations.

The PowerPoint presentations are now online for the four major sessions, Framing the Issues, Assessment, Library Publishing, and Outreach.
