New Scholarly Communication Interest Group – Orbis Cascade Alliance

A new interest group has just been formed for library staff/faculty from Orbis Cascade member institutions.  While the group has an initial charge, we are looking for interested participants to help shape our activities – and to let us know what is important to you.  If you are interested in joining the group, visit the Alliance email list page for instructions.

The charge of the group is:

The Scholarly Communication Interest Group provides a forum for discussion and development of library-led collaborative opportunities related to open access and new modes of scholarly publishing.

The Scholarly Communication Interest group will foster library leadership in shaping institutional (and consortial) policies and services that support sustainable models of scholarly communication, including, but not limited to, open access policies, library publishing services, repository-based services and advocacy for authors’ rights.  Interest group members will also contribute to the development of best practices, educational resources and training opportunities for librarians, administrators, faculty and students in these areas.

If you would like more information, contact Sue Kunda (Oregon State Univ.) or Isaac Gilman (Pacific Univ.).
