The Scholarly Communications Committee of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) has named OhioLINK and the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) as hosts for its 2011 Scholarly Communication 101: Starting with the Basics roadshow. The workshop, which will be held Tuesday, June 7, at the Ohio State University Newark, will educate approximately 100 librarians about new methods of scholarly publishing and communication, open access and openness as a principle, copyright and intellectual property, and economics.
“OhioLINK and the ALAO understand that open access resources and alternative methods of scholarly publishing will be a key to the future of academia,” says Eric Fingerhut, Chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents. “The Scholarly Communication Roadshow will give Ohio’s academic librarians the foundation they need to help shape the scholarly communication plans and programs at their institutions.”
More information about the workshop will be available in the coming weeks.
