A webinar on “Research libraries in an Open Access world” on 14 December, 3 p.m.–4.45 p.m. Registration and more information about the webinar can be found here.
Libraries need to engage with evolutions in scholarly communication if they wish to stay relevant in the context of teaching, learning and research. Are our libraries prepared for the OA world? Have libraries changed sufficiently at their core to continue playing a central role in scholarly communication in a context which is not only digital but also OA? Is developing publishing programs within the library the only answer to that question and does this affect other areas of the library in a significant way? Or should libraries focus completely on a future as student-oriented learning centres and leave research support to others? Join this free webinar and contribute to the discussion.
