Libraries must negotiate a range of legal issues, policies and ethical guidelines when developing scholarly communication initiatives. Library Scholarly Communication Programs is a practical primer, covering these issues for institutional repository managers, library administrators, and other staff involved in library-based repository and publishing services. The title is composed of four parts. Part one describes the evolution of scholarly communication programs within academic libraries, part two explores institutional repositories and part three covers library publishing services. Part four concludes with strategies for creating an internal infrastructure, comprised of policy, best practices and education initiatives, which will support the legal and ethical practices discussed in the book.

  • demonstrates the importance of creating a policy infrastructure for scholarly communication initiatives
  • offers a novel combination of legal and ethical issues in a plain, approachable format
  • provides samples of policy and contract language, as well as several case studies, to illustrate the concepts presented

 

A careful, authoritative, and comprehensive guide to the ethical and legal issues of library publishing and scholarly communications. Informed and informative, it is well-documented and remarkably thorough; an essential resource for all library publishers and repository managers.
