Prepare to Participate in Open Access Week with ACRL Toolkit

Let ACRL’s Scholarly Communication Toolkit help you prepare to lead events on your campus during Open Access Week, October 24-30, 2011. Open Access Week, a global event now entering its fifth year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

The ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit provides context and background by summarizing key issues to offer quick, basic information on scholarly communication topics. It also links to examples of specific tools, including handouts, presentation templates and videos for librarians to adapt and use on their own campuses. The toolkit serves as a valuable resource for scholarly communication discussions inside the library and for outreach programs to faculty and administrators.

ACRL’s strategic goal for the research and scholarly environment is that librarians accelerate the transition to a more open system of scholarship. Be part of the movement to influence scholarly publishing policies and practices toward a more open system.
