In the past year, our library system has placed an emphasis on developing our scholarly communications and digital publishing initiatives. With new librarians with extensive responsibilities in these areas, our team of scholarly communication and digital publishing librarians at Wayne State University has been working towards identifying and rebranding our suite of scholarly communications and publishing services, which we now call The Scholars Cooperative. The Scholars Cooperative aids, educates and empowers the campus community to advance the creation, distribution and preservation of scholarship beyond traditional academic publishing models. We will share the cooperatives’ vision, planning process, organizational structure, and services offered. Learn from two of the planning librarians ways in which you can promote your scholarly communications and publishing services to your students, faculty, and staff.
