The ACRL wants your help in identifying actionable steps that academic librarians can take to accelerate the transition to and build capacity for more open, inclusive, and equitable systems of scholarship. Rebecca Kennison and Nancy Maron have been hired by ACRL to undertake this work, working closely with their Research and Scholarly Environment Committee.
The project (see full description) involves community consultation, to be sure that we understand the priorities of many different types of people involved in scholarly communications.
This study will result in a report to be published in 2019 that captures effective current practices and outlines new directions for research and investigation to accelerate the transition to more open, inclusive, and equitable systems of scholarship.
Please join Nancy Maron for a roundtable discussion to learn more about the project and to be sure we address the issues you care most about.
