Let the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) help you prepare to lead events on your campus during Open Access Week, October 24-30, 2011, with the Scholarly Communication Toolkit. The ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit provides context and background by summarizing key issues to offer quick, basic information on scholarly communication topics. It also links to examples of specific tools, including handouts, presentation templates and videos for librarians to adapt and use on their own campuses. The toolkit serves as a valuable resource for scholarly communication discussions inside the library and for outreach programs to faculty and administrators.
ACRL's strategic goal for the research and scholarly environment is that librarians accelerate the transition to a more open system of scholarship. Let ACRL help you be part of the movement to influence scholarly publishing policies and practices toward a more open system.
