Learning the Basics of Scholarly Communication – Codex

From Madeline Cohen, of Lehman College/CUNY comes this concise and helpful overview of some essential schol comm resources. Abstract:

“Academic librarians are playing a greater role in scholarly communication at their
institutions. Scholarly communication has become a part of every academic librarian’s
work. In particular, the role of subject liaison librarian often includes responsibilities
related to advising discipline faculty on scholarly publishing, open access, institutional
repositories and copyright. Liaison librarians might take on these responsibilities without
having a firm grasp of the landscape of scholarly communication due to lack of
experience or education in this area. This article is a guide to the key issues and concepts
of scholarly communication for librarians new to this facet of academic librarianship. A
guide to readings and resources is offered for librarians to educate themselves quickly on
these basic issues.”
