Panel: “The Future of Scholarly Communication”

Next Wednesday, September 18th, the Scholarly Commons along with IPRH, GSLIS, and the Spurlock Museum will be sponsoring a panel on Scholarly Communication.

The ubiquity of digital technology and networked communication, in parallel with changing dynamics and economics of scholarship and the academy have led to rapid change in scholarly communication. While it appears clear that sharing scholarship and engaging in scholarly dialogue will remain central to the academic enterprise, the best ways to share and to conduct that dialogue are less clear. Libraries, scholarly societies, and, of course, scholars themselves are all assessing both present and future modes and methods of communication. This panel discussion will be conducted by those on the front lines of that assessment and of innovations in response.
Presented in collaboration with the Scholarly Commons of the University Library and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, with co-sponsorship by the Spurlock Museum.

The panel consists of: Kathleen Fitzpatrick the Director of Scholarly Communication of the Modern Language Association and Visiting Research Professor of English, New York University, Seth Denbo the Director of Scholarly Communication and Digital Initiatives at the American Historical Association, and Maria Bonn from the Graduate School of Library and Information Sciences and the Editor of the Journal of Electronic Publishing.
