ACRL/EBSS Scholarly Communication Committee

ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit

The ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit was initially launched in 2005 by the ACRL Research and Scholarly Environment Committee (formerly the Scholarly Communication Committee) to support advocacy efforts designed to transform the scholarly communication landscape.

The toolkit is an educational resource primarily directed to librarians to assist them with:

  1. integrating a scholarly communication perspective into library operations and programs and
  2. preparing presentations on scholarly communication issues for administrators, faculty, staff, students, or other librarians.
