CHICAGO — The Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) will present a three-day (June 10-12) virtual preconference designed to inform and inspire attendees to "just say yes" to developing or expanding scholarly communication programs on their own campuses and to identify content recruitment opportunities for library-supported publishing and institutional repositories.
Sessions 1 and 2 describe how Oregon State University Libraries has successfully integrated its institutional repository into faculty research and scholarship activities and has used SHERPA/RoMEO to successfully engage with faculty.
Session 3 teaches participants how a simple journal host at the University of South Florida Tampa Library evolved into a full-fledged publishing repository for books, textbooks, conferences, datasets and open-access journals.
