About the SC@S Blog

Scholarly communication at scale provides up-to-date information about scholarly communication happenings both in and out of  the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI).  While this blog was created to inform the PALNI audience, all readers are invited to view and use this content as it suits their needs. This blog’s goal is to aggregate vital scholarly communication news from many sources in one place–enabling readers to stay easily and quickly informed about scholarly communications, although it may not be their main area of emphasis or responsibility.

PALNI defines scholarly communication as…

The cycle through which scholarly information is created, evaluated, disseminated, acquired, and preserved.

Scholarly communication at scale’s specific purpose is to provide scholarly communication information in a way that is relevant and digestible to seekers of all types and skill levels, at institutions of various size and experience.

This blog is maintained by PALNI Scholarly Communications Director Amanda Hurford, amanda@palni.edu.
