CHICAGO – Today's academic and research librarians increasingly act as change agents in the higher education community. Nowhere is this more true than in the realm of open access and scholarly communication. To help empower our community in accelerating the transformation of the scholarly communication system, ACRL is once again taking its popular scholarly “Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement” workshop on the road to five locations in 2015. The day-long workshop is led by two expert presenters at locations across the country, and the content is updated annually to meet the evolving needs of the community. We continue the extended timeline started last year so that hosts selected for the subsidized version of the program will have longer to prepare and promote the workshop on their campuses.

The program continues its cost-sharing model as ACRL is committed to underwriting the bulk of the expense for delivering the road show, and the cost for successful host institutions is $2,000. The application to host is now available. Apply by 5 p.m. Central on Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014. Find out more on the program website.

In addition to the competitive subsidized version, you may bring this one-day workshop, at full cost, to your campus, chapter, or consortia year round.
