SPARC/ACRL Forum: Advancing “Open” through Library Partnerships with Students and Early Career Researchers
Saturday, June 27, 2015 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Over the past few years, collaborations have been increasing between academic libraries and students and early-career researchers—specifically around the issues of open access, open educational resources, and open data. Although academic libraries often work directly with faculty members on “open” issues, there is a growing opportunity for libraries to engage with graduate students and other early career researchers, who make up the next generation of faculty members and have the potential to collectively transform scholarly communication systems into fully open models.
This forum—hosted by SPARC and the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL)—will discuss the benefits of working with students and early career researchers and highlight how libraries can engage effectively with these important stakeholders by showcasing successful examples of collaboration.
