Mission

***THE GROUP WAS DISBANDED IN DECEMBER 2012 -- THIS LIBGUIDE IS NO LONGER UPDATED***

Scholarly Communications Working Group - Official Charge 

This Working Group is charged with working with the Scholarly Communications Librarian in a team effort to coordinate activities and develop instructional materials in support of scholarly communications, scholarly publication reform, intellectual property issues, and open access activities and programs provided by the Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida.  The broader purpose is to recruit, collect, showcase, and preserve the scholarly output of the University of Florida.  More specifically, the Working Group will identify needs and propose and undertake creative actions essential to ensuring that the Libraries continue to provide an effective open access program, a vibrant institutional repository, and information and instruction about scholarly communication matters. 

Responsibilities include coordinating and creating promotional activities for the annual Open Access Week, contributing current items to the Open Access LibGuide and other instructional materials (e.g., Scholarly Communications LibGuide), developing online tutorials and other media to inform the academic community, and providing professional development assistance and instructional materials to Library faculty and staff for library instruction, among other projects.  

The Working Group is comprised of members with the following attributes, while it also has the responsibility to foster such professional development among library faculty and staff:

  • knowledge of open access trends and development;
  • knowledge of scholarly publishing and new models for scholarly communication
  • understanding of the issues involved in open access, and who can explain its importance and justify increased participation with it;
  • a willingness to become familiar with scholarly communications policy issues
  • understanding of faculty concerns regarding open access publishing;
  • willingness to share information and communicate effectively with each other; and
  • strong positive relationships between library staff and teaching faculty.
