You are invited to attend the upcoming ACRL Scholarly Communication 101 Road Show. The University of Hawaii at Manoa Library is honored to have been selected by ACRL to host a Scholarly Communication 101 Road Show on April 25.
They will be sending two dynamic presenters to conduct a four-hour workshop discussing important topics revolving around scholarly communication: changes in scholarly publishing and its economic issues, copyright, and open access, to name a few.
In addition, participants will have a chance to brainstorm with their colleagues about these issues as they apply to our UH system schools.
Please join us on that day at Hamilton Library on the UHM campus. Find out more and register for the event.
For more information, please contact Sara Rutter or Beth Tillinghast of the UHM Library.
