"What do scholarly communication librarians need to know about publishing? Do you need a JD to lead a library copyright program? Is research data management too big a job for any one person? Scholarly communication is recognized as a core competency for librarianship but there is currently no unified educational resource available for training and continuing education that represents the great diversity of experience and perspectives at place in effective support for scholarly communication.

This lively discussion asks librarians, publishers, vendors and other interested information professionals to weigh in on a community conversation about what scholarly communication is and what training a librarian should have to do the job. We’ll prime the discussion with findings from our IMLS-funded (LG-72-17-0132-17), study on this interdisciplinary and quickly evolving field. Then we’ll dig into these questions, with an eye to incorporating your ideas into an open educational resource (OER) for teaching library students and professionals about scholarly communication. Join the conversation about what kind of librarians we should be growing and what they need to blossom!
