Scholarly Communication Boot Camp: Getting Liaisons Up to Speed

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Liaison librarians everywhere are being asked to share more and more in the work of scholarly communication. In many cases they need extensive training to be prepared to talk about these topics with faculty and students. Since scholarly communication is a broad topic covering everything from author’s rights to open educational resources, it is difficult to find a single webinar or conference that will expose liaisons to everything they need to know in this arena. Join East Carolina University’s Scholarly Communication Librarian and Head of Collection Development as they talk about how they crafted a year-long scholarly communication boot camp using only free webinars and self-taught sessions designed to bring liaisons up to speed in this very important area. Attendees can expect to learn where to locate free resources when building such a program, the thought-processes that went into crafting the boot camp and whether it has been successful so far. Discussion will be heavily encouraged throughout the session.
