For many years, the academic and research library workforce has worked to accelerate the transition to more open, inclusive, and equitable systems of scholarship. Learn about ACRL’s new research agenda “Open and Equitable Scholarly Communications: Creating a More Inclusive Future” in a free ACRL Presents webcast on Monday, July 15, 2019. This action-oriented research agenda is designed to provide practical, actionable information for academic librarians; include the perspectives of historically underrepresented communities in order to expand the profession’s understanding of research environments and scholarly communication systems; and point librarians and other scholars toward important research questions to investigate.

Attendees will also learn how to apply for an ACRL research grant of up to $5,000 to investigate timely and substantial research questions, developing solutions that will move the community forward. Register for free online, and you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. The webcast will be recorded and posted on the ACRL website after the live event.
