Scholarly Communications Advisory Board-Scholarly Communications - Carnegie Mellon University

Scholarly Communications Advisory Board

Formed at the recommendation of the University Libraries’ Scholarly Communications Committee, Carnegie Mellon’s Scholarly Communications Advisory Board advises and guides the University Libraries to facilitate needed changes in scholarly communications across the disciplines at the university.  The Board helps the Libraries:

  • Plan and prioritize initiatives, develop strategies, and organize events to keep the campus community well informed and well served. 
  • Keep abreast of evolving disciplinary practices and faculty concerns.
  • Address federal regulations that impact scholarly communications, e.g., federal public access policies for peer-reviewed articles and digital data arising from federally funded research.

The Advisory Board meets twice a year, spring and fall semesters.  Agenda items may be sent to Denise Troll Covey, Scholarly Communications Librarian and Convener of the Scholarly Communications Advisory Board, troll@andrew.cmu.edu.
