Small Museums Libraries and Archives Advocating to Preserve Our Heritage - webinar

Small Museums Libraries and Archives Advocating to Preserve Our Heritage - webinar | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
Wednesday, Dec. 4
2–3:30 p.m. (ET)

Small museums, historical societies, libraries and archives share a common mission: preserving our cultural heritage. To accomplish this, archivists, librarians and museum professionals must be effective not only in the technical aspects of preservation but also in the areas of communication and advocacy. 

In this webinar, presenters will discuss the issues that our organizations are advocating for, including preserving historical records, copyright issues, privacy concerns and funding for efforts such as the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Connecting to Collections initiative, the National Historical Publications and Record Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Archives and Records Administration.  

We’ll cover examples of awareness-building and collaboration in action on local, state, regional and national levels, including the American Alliance of Museums and Society for American Archivists (SAA) advocacy agendas, the Hoosier Heritage Alliance and EveryLibrary. Presenters will share tools and resources that you can use to work with other institutions, communicate with your audience and build support in your community for your collections and services. 

This webinar is presented by the joint SAA-ALA-AAM Committee on Libraries, Archives and Museums (CALM), charged with fostering closer cooperation among the member organizations and our professional allies, including common standards and best practices. CALM annually schedules sessions on a common topic at the national conferences of the member organizations.

How #librarians can help researchers navigate open access choices #webinar #OA

How #librarians can help researchers navigate open access choices #webinar #OA | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
Webinar: 

Open-access publishing has grown dramatically in the last five years. There have been many positive initiatives to help researchers communicate and access information in a sustainable way. However, as with many paradigm shifts, there are growing pains associated, including predatory journal practices and lack of clarity around terms and options.

In anticipation of Open Access Week October 21 to 27, Elsevier's Library Connect program is hosting a free webinar: "How librarians can help researchers navigate open access choices." In this live event, a surgeon/scholar, publisher and librarian will equip librarians and authors with the terminology, models and best practices of open access publishing and journal choices in general.

What metrics and standards should librarians and authors consider in determining in which journals to submit? Does the journal have an ethical publishing statement? How can you find journals that best fit the audience and research? What tools are out there to assist?

Terminology, models and best practices for open access publishing!

Annemarijs's curator insight, April 26, 2014 3:30 AM

Woensdag 30 april is er een webinar over het aantrekkelijk maken van bibliotheekwebsites. Websites van bibliotheken waren tot nog toe vooral sites om te zoeken naar informatie en om je boeken te verlengen of reserveren. Door de verdere ontwikkeling naar een digitale netwerksamenleving zullen klanten van bibliotheken behoefte hebben aan websites die ook als ontmoetingsplaats kunnen fungeren over allerlei grenzen heen.
