What are Scholarly Communications Library Services?
“Scholarly communication is the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created,
evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use.”
Changes in the world of information, publishing, technology, open access and funding is radically altering the traditional scholarly communications paradigm. Assisting scholars and higher education institutions in adapting to these changes is the function of a Scholarly Communications Library Service. These service areas aid with:
- Advocacy for open access to scholarship and the creation of open textbooks for students.
- Adoption of collection development policies and reprioritization of collection development budgets to strategically support open scholarship.
- Development and management of institutional repositories and data repositories for the purpose of collecting, preserving, making openly accessible, showcasing, and maximizing the discovery of, institutional research output.
- Provide guidance around how to avoid predatory publishers.
