Abstract

Scholarly communication issues, such as access, research, and the promotion of scholarly communities are at the core of university libraries’ values. This session will demonstrate how to put the values of librarianship into practice at your institution by addressing the publishing needs of your faculty. At Loyola Marymount University, a medium-size, private institution, three librarians were tasked to assist faculty in the publishing process, in particular, help faculty choose credible and reliable journals in which to publish. This session will outline difficulties encountered with publishing by faculty, the case for the library’s involvement, and techniques to promote scholarly publishing. By being active agents in the scholarly communication arena the library is integrated seamlessly in an institution’s research mission and ultimately proves to be an invaluable source to the campus research community.
