The ARL has launched a new web site to help libraries develop a scholarly communication program, January 29, 2009.  Excerpt:

Want to start a scholarly communications program at your institution? Do you have an existing program and are looking for tools that other institutions have found useful? The goal of this site is to enable ARL/ACRL members to find help at your point of need, and to leverage the expertise and experience of library colleagues everywhere.

Scholarly communication initiatives can take many different forms and focus on many different issues, such as the Harvard Arts & Science faculty’s Open Access resolution, the University of California’s innovative recruitment of faculty publications into its eScholarship Repository, the University of Minnesota’s author’s rights education program, or SPARC’s student-focused “Right to Research” campaign. Whatever the issues particularly relevant to your institution, librarians can engage faculty members, students, and administrators to make a significant impact on the scholarly landscape….

The site was created by Kris Fowler, Gail Persily, and Jim Stemper.
