ACRL has released its Scholarly Communication Toolkit, designed to help academic librarians recognize naturally occurring opportunities to discuss scholarly communication issues with faculty.
I found the below case particularly relevant since the recent downturn in the economy and the resulting journal cancellation activities may open opportunities to discuss open access publishing with faculty.
Professor Jameson was trying to get online access to a journal article for her research through the library, but the library did not provide access to it. So she asked her subject librarian why.
The librarian could take the chance to talk about the access barrier and spiraling costs of journal subscriptions. She could also bring up the concept of open access and the publication of open access peer-reviewed journals. That would inform Professor Jameson of issues about commercial scholarly publishing and bring to her attention new scholarly publishing models. It would also be a prime opportunity to discuss what academic authors, editors, and reviewers can do to initiate change. Of course, this same discussion could follow questions surrounding journal cancellation activities necessitated by the recent economic climate.
