Join us for 2017 SCUNC in Atlanta

Following the success of ASERL’s first unconference in May 2015, we are excited to announce the 2017 SCUNC (Scholarly Communications Unconference) on Friday, January 20, 2017, in Atlanta, Georgia. Piggybacking on the ALA Midwinter Meeting, ASERL is hoping that many of our scholarly communications colleagues who are already planning to attend Midwinter will be able to join us for a fun day of ALL THINGS SCHOLCOMM!

Never been to an unconference before? Never fear! They are fun, relaxed yet energizing days where YOU pick the content and help drive the discussions. Doing something cool at your library you wish to share? Propose it! Want to talk about challenges you face, to see if others face them too (short answer: yes)? Propose it! This is YOUR conference, to make it be what you need.

So register today to join us in January for SCUNC at Georgia State University Libraries!

Details, links, and all those etceteras…

  • Registration limited to the first 50 ASERL members; $50 attendance fee (to be billed later)
  • Register today – registration deadline January 6, 2017
  • Propose sessions after you register – proposal deadline January 10, 2017

Questions? Feel free to contact John Burger (, Melanie Kowalski (, or Molly Keener (
