Scholarly Communication: A Guide for the Perplexed ($25 per person)
What is scholarly communication? How does it apply to the field of theology and religious studies? If you are wondering how to become more involved in this transformative movement within librarianship, this half-day workshop is for you! Led by members of the ATLA Taskforce on Scholarly Communication in Religion and Theology, we'll provide a basic framework for advancing scholarly communication within our discipline. We'll review the fundamentals of copyright law, talk about key initiatives toward fostering open access, open education resources, and open data. After we get the basics under our belts, we'll go hands-on and begin exploring these concepts practically. You'll come away with key tools and resources you need to develop your expertise in this quickly-evolving area.

Cost is $25 per person.
