Apologies for cross-list duplication if you have already received this notice.

As part of our effort to inform, educate (and hopefully excite!) our faculty at Pacific University - as well as librarians, faculty and administrators at other institutions - we will be hosting a one-day conference this fall dedicated to scholarly communications issues.  The conference is open to all, and registration is free.

Call for Presenters:

If you would be interested in sharing your knowledge/experiences by presenting, or by participating in a panel discussion, etc, we would be thrilled to have you.  A preliminary description of the conference, with suggested topics, is below.  Please contact me (Isaac Gilman) at gilmani at pacificu.edu<mailto:gilmani at pacificu.edu> by August 28 (sooner is fine too!) if you're interested in presenting.  Include a brief summary/abstract (of no more than 300 words) of your presentation for the conference committee to review.  If you are interested in participating in a panel, please outline what topic(s) you are interested in discussing.

Invitation to Attend:

If you don't feel up to presenting, but would like to attend - that would be great, too!  And if you're already a scholarly communications expert...this could be an excellent opportunity for faculty and administrators at your institutions who haven't had an opportunity to take part in a similar conference, or who would like to learn more about scholarly communication issues.

Conference Description:

Sustainable Scholarship: Open Access and Digital Repositories

On Tuesday, October 20, 2009, Pacific University is hosting a one-day conference dedicated to exploring alternative models of scholarly communication - particularly those that can be supported through a digital repository platform.

Conference sessions will include discussion of (among other topics):

 *   digital repositories as open access publishing platforms
