Library Summer Workshop Series

We have four great hosts for this week’s Summer Workshop session! Jenessa McElfresh, John Morgenstern, Ed Rock, and Yang Wu will be in the Brown Room Tuesday, June 4th at 11am for Essentials of Scholarly Publishing. They will discuss metrics of scholarly impact, predatory publishers, and who you can turn to for help when creating and publishing OER.

After almost 18 months of work, the Library Diversity Plan Working Group has completed a draft of the Libraries Diversity Plan. It is now on our StaffWeb page and we would like to hear your thoughts. Comments will be open through Friday, June 14.
Dean Cox is currently creating a charge for an ongoing Library Diversity Committee to work on the plan through 2026. Be on the lookout for a call for volunteers.
