21st Century Scholarly Communication: Conversations for Change

As the Open Access movement ramps up in the humanities and social sciences, librarians need to be aware of the initiatives that are altering traditional scholarly publishing. Open access journals, monographs, presses, and more, are changing librarians' roles and the scholarly communication landscape. This panel discussed the progress and impact of this important reform movement from the perspective of feminist librarians and other stakeholders.

Monday June 27, 2011 8:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. in the Morial Convention Center-Room 343. The panel began at 8:30. There was a brief award ceremony at 8:00am for Kay Cassell, 2011 winner of the WGSS Career Achievement Award.

Powerpoint Presentations are available through ALA Connect and on the Presenters page of this website.
