Scholarly Communication Outreach: Crafting Messages that Grab Faculty Attention

 March 11-12, 2009 in Seattle, WA

Are you already working with faculty and researchers on your campus for change? Do you want to develop a deeper understanding of how scholars’ communication practices are changing and how the landscape appears to them?

Librarians supporting scholarly-communication programs want to know how to identify issues that will resonate with faculty at their institutions and how to present those issues in ways that generate positive engagement with faculty. If this describes your situation, you won’t want to miss the new ARL/ACRL Institute on Scholarly Communication workshop “Scholarly Communication Outreach: Crafting Messages that Grab Faculty Attention,” March 11—12, 2009, in Seattle, Washington.

 In the tradition of other Institute events, this workshop will emphasize active learning and hands-on work by participants, both individually and in groups. Throughout the workshop, participants will have structured opportunities to reflect on how to apply what they are learning to their own institution’s outreach activities, to share information and test ideas, and to begin planning for future outreach.  (Note: registration for the workshop is a separate process from registration for the ACRL National Conference or its preconferences, which opens later in September.)
