The Scholar's Space
"The Scholar's Space, from the Texas Digital Library, provides a forum for the discussion of our academic system of scholarly communication. We're in a time of rapid change, with unprecedented innovation presenting a fantastic opportunity to reshape this system, using tools that were unheard of only two decades ago. Academia has much to gain from rethinking its own publishing processes, and working with its commercial and other partners to take advantage of all that the Internet and improved communications media offer all of us. Chances to collaborate with other academic institutions offer a third avenue for exploiting these opportunities. So what are we doing? What should we be doing? What's new on the scholarly communications front?"
