Course Description

The scholarly publishing environment continues to evolve, but one aspect that has not changed is the central role that librarians play in this arena. Faculty are looking to the library for advice on how to navigate the increasingly complicated process of publications and for guidance on the impact copyright has on both their own publications and the materials that they use in their classes. Once librarians have established their expertise in these areas, they not only have an opportunity to offer much needed services to their patrons but also to serve as true advocates on campus in conversations about Open Access, tenure procedures, and course design.

In this course, participants will gain an understanding of the scholarly communications landscape and will learn the basics on academic publishing issues, copyright, Open Access, and institutional repositories. By the end of the course, participants will be prepared to:

  • advise colleagues and patrons on scholarly communications issues,
  • determine whether their institution should have an institutional repository and, if so, how it should be administered
  • navigate common copyright issues that occur in libraries and academic institutions
  • advocate for change at their institutions
  • keep up-to-date in this fast changing area of librarianship
