Scholarly Communications Interest Group

Scholarly communications covers a broad range of activities, including the discovery, collection, organization, evaluation, interpretation, and preservation of primary and other sources of information, and the publication and dissemination of scholarly research. As these issues become increasingly important to our members, ASERL’s Scholarly Communications Interest Group strives to support the development of such initiatives  through the provision of education and training resources and fostering a network of colleagues who share similar interests and needs.

The ASERL Scholarly Communication Interest Group is currently led by co-chairs

Rachel Caldwell rachelcaldwell@utk.edu (Scholarly Communications and Publishing Librarian, University of Tennessee Knoxville)

Devin Soper dsoper@fsu.edu (Director of the Office of Digital Research and Scholarship, Florida State University).


Copyright Office Hours: A service by ASERL members, for ASERL members.

Copyright questions from ASERL members may be submitted anonymously ahead of time.
