Journals continue their transition to becoming increasingly digital publications, experimenting with new publishing models such as Open Access (OA) and incorporating multimedia into their formats. In addition to these changes in scholarly output, the process of research is also changing due to mandates from funding agencies to publicly share research findings and data. In this workshop, Emily Puckett Rodgers and Meredith Kahn will provide you with tools, techniques, and advice on how to successfully engage with emerging open publishing practices in your own library.

After participating in this event, you will:

-Be able to recognize foundational aspects of these trends in order to understand, evaluate, and apply open scholarly practices at your own institution

-Know techniques to develop a customized elevator pitch to your faculty or administration when they have question about these issues

-Be able to engage with these trends in your own library
