Faculty Forum - Rick Provine

WHAT:   "Scholarly Publishing and Libraries:  Why we do what we do"
WHO:      Rick Provine, Director of Libraries
WHERE:  UB 231/232
WHEN:    March 19, 2013 11:30 am
Quite simply, the modes of scholarly communication are changing, and hence, so are libraries.  There has been a great deal of concern over the years about what these changes mean for us and how we engage with the libraries -- how it changes what it is that the libraries do and how they do it.  This promises to be an important discussion, so please join us for a talk about how the changes in scholarly publishing affect library services, collections, and the tools of access.
