ACRL Roadshow Workshop: Scholarly Communications: From Understanding to Engagement

ACRL will once again be offering the Scholarly Communications Road show at a subsidized rate. Now titled "Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement," the road show was originally offered to raise awareness about scholarly communications in the community. ACRL initially underwrote the full costs of the then named "Scholarly Communications 101 - Starting with the Basics" program to support this goal. The program has evolved from this central goal of awareness building and three successful years later, the program now supports in-depth training as institutions are developing scholarly communications programming. As the workshop's goals have moved from raising awareness to training, the road show program is transitioning into an established ACRL professional development program in alignment with ACRL's other offerings. In 2012, the program will be expanded and enhanced to a full day workshop with more applied programmatic elements while still retaining much of the "101 basics" elements. The program will also move to a cost sharing model. In 2012-13, virtual program offerings will be developed
