ACRL-OR board president Isaac Gilman has published an important new book. Library Scholarly Communication Programs: Legal and Ethical Considerations addresses the range of legal issues, policies and ethical guidelines libraries must address when developing scholarly communication initiatives. Join us in congratulating Isaac on this achievement and contribution to librarianship!
From Woodhead Publishing: This practical primer covers these issues for institutional repository managers, library administrators, and other staff involved in library based repository and publishing services. After an introduction which describes the evolution of scholarly communication programs within academic libraries, chapters explore institutional repositories and library publishing services. The conclusion offers strategies for creating an internal infrastructure, comprised of policy, best practices and education initiatives that will support the legal and ethical practices discussed in the book.
