Scholarly Communications Committee

The Scholarly Communications Committee is responsible for leading library initiatives related to scholarly communications, seeking opportunities to collaborate with other campus constituencies, and developing and maintaining a website on scholarly communications.  Example activities include educating the university community about open access and other important topics, guiding the development of Research Showcase (the university’s open access repository), and coordinating the Scholarly Communications Forum program.

The Scholarly Communications Committee meets once a month throughout the year.  Agenda items may be sent to Katie Behrman, Research Showcase Outreach Coordinator, kbehrman@andrew.cmu.edu, or to Denise Troll Covey, Scholarly Communications Librarian, troll@andrew.cmu.edu.
