Feedback form is now closed.
Librarians are increasingly working with researchers on campus (and across campuses) to forge new initiatives around archival content, diverse stakeholder voices, and campus policies. They are also conducting research which they must share to gather stakeholder feedback. The resulting projects (and works in progress) might not fit easily or operate to their full potential on current hosting platforms or repositories due to multimedia, affiliation-restrictions, or limited feature sets. Infrastructure developed by universities for academics offers increasing flexibility to meet the needs of publications today and tomorrow, including OER creation. New tools enable attribution around a wide range of contributor roles, aligning with new ethics around labor. Learn how such communities are coming together in person and online using open source tools to maximize efficiency and impact. Librarians from Duke University and MIT will share their experiences with tools and workflows, and attendees are encouraged to tell their own stories. Through this exchange the group will develop a living resource page to share best practices and ongoing discussions. This roundtable discussion will focus on challenges and solutions to delivering sustainable platforms for new scholarly communication outputs. Attendees will learn how to advise their faculty and students in creating multi-format outputs, including multi-media and interactive elements. They will also learn about options for internal and external engagement.
