March 29: ACRL Roadshow

UD Library to host daylong workshop on ‘Scholarly Communication’

The University of Delaware Library will host the ACRL Roadshow, with the theme “Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement,” from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 29, at the Courtyard Newark-University of Delaware campus hotel.

Registration is $50 and includes breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Jenny Oleen, scholarly communications librarian at Western Washington University, and Anali Maughan Perry, collections and scholarly communication librarian with Arizona State University Libraries, will lead the workshop.

The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) workshop is directed toward librarians and library staff members who need a broad foundational knowledge of scholarly communication issues and will focus on three areas:

• Copyright 201: Making and Sharing Scholarship;

• Open Education (resources, textbooks, courses); and

• Outreach and Programming.

Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of copyright and its application to the rights questions that arise on their campuses, a strategy for promoting open education resources and supporting faculty who choose to use such resources, and practical ideas for developing outreach activities and models for supporting changes in scholarly communication.

The workshop is appropriate for administrators, library liaisons, those working in scholarly communication or digital publishing, as well as any others who are seeking to increase their knowledge of scholarly communication.

Registration and additional details are available at this website.

Send any questions to Marie Seymour-Green or Cathy Wojewodzki at lib-roadshow@udel.edu.
