ACRL’s Scholarly Communication Toolkit now offers twelve cases, integrating information from throughout the Toolkit, to help you recognize naturally occurring possibilities to start discussions that may create change on campus.
Opportunities to raise scholarly communication issues come up in a variety of settings when interacting with faculty. Librarians can often take advantage of these opportunities to increase awareness of those issues and new developments in scholarly publishing. Discussions may result in a faculty member’s use of, and support for, new services created by the library’s scholarly communication initiatives. Some faculty may even become advocates for introducing changes in the institution’s strategies of disseminating locally generated scholarly content.
Read these twelve real life cases and contribute your own via the Toolkit comments. Help promote a shared system of research and scholarship.
