has been accepted to attend the Institute on Scholarly Communication in July. We hope to emerge from that
experience with an action plan that will certainly include SC education efforts that we can pursue with the
help of the Faculty Library Council.”
“I would like to see a list of outcome measurements for teaching scholarly communication.”
“If we are going to succeed we’ve got to get off our high horse and cut back on missionary activities and
instead be honest about the publishing options that exist, and the pressures that academics face. What is
important is developing relationships on campus based on trust and honesty. If we can get to a place where
responsible librarians will advise a young faculty member that it is in her best interest to publish in a specific
Elsevier journal, and to suggest to another senior faculty member that they place their article in a specific OA
journal published by a society or another university, then we will have a chance of success because we will be
seen as acting in the best interest of that individual faculty member and that specific discipline. If, every time
a faculty member or graduate student comes to us they instead get a lecture about OA or retaining copyright,
then we’re probably in a dying profession.”
“In 1999, there was an Inter-institutional Task Force on Scholarly Communication (made up of representatives
from the three state regents institutions).”
“Key library staff engaged in efforts of scholarly communication education are no longer at the library.”
“Our apologies for not providing more information, but this area is being revisited and we are hoping to
have more specific plans and programs soon. We are sending someone to the ARL/ACRL Institute on SC this
summer and plan to hire a new AUL within the year whose responsibilities will include this area.”
“Our approach to SC activities has been different from that implied by these questions: Mellon-funded
Scholarly Communication Institutes focusing on how the issue affects & can be used in specific disciplines;
workshops & one-on-one advising for interested faculty on IP issues, i.e., ‘point-of-need;’ subject librarians
with faculty in their disciplines; sponsoring a fellow from the CLIR Post doc program, creating new leaders in
this area.”
“Our institutional repository currently contains 43 communities of varying size, including liberal arts,
professional schools, the graduate school, health center, law school, university archives, regional campuses,
and a variety of centers and institutes. We have included all journals in the Directory of Open Access Journals
in our catalog for ease of access.”
“The University Provost has appointed a Task Force on Scholarly Communication to address scholarly
communications issues from a broad perspective. The Task Force, chaired by the Dean of Libraries, includes
faculty, researchers, librarians, and administrators. A campus-wide symposium on scholarly communication is
planned for 2008. The Libraries is in the process of recruiting an Associate Dean for Information Resources
and Scholarly Communication, whose role will be to develop a program on scholarly communication issues in
collaboration with the Office of Copyright and the University Press.”
“Senate Committee on Library and Scholarly Communications endorsed system-wide document promoting
faculty retaining copyright of scholarly articles.”
“Several librarians are interested in educating their colleague librarians, at least, about copyright issues in
regards to scholarly communication, reserves, etc. We are also hoping to invite an outside expert to speak to
us on this issue. We have also proposed that the three campuses hire a copyright expert who will be better
