The intersection of IL and Scholarly Communication needs collaboration

This book just came out.  Common Ground at the Nexus of Information Literacy and Scholarly Communication is published by the Association of College and Research Libraries and edited by Stephanie Davis-Kahl and Merinda Kaye Hensley.

Most of this book was also published as an Open Access PDF version. (Note: this online edition, for reasons of permission, lacks Chapter 2 of the print edition.)

Common Ground at the Nexus of Information Literacy and Scholarly Communication presents concepts, experiments, collaborations, and strategies at the crossroads of the fields of scholarly communication and information literacy. The seventeen essays and interviews in this volume engage ideas and describe vital partnerships that enrich both information literacy and scholarly communication programs within institutions of higher education. Contributions address core scholarly communication topics such as open access, copyright, authors’ rights, the social and economic factors of publishing, and scholarly publishing through the lens of information literacy. This volume is appropriate for all university and college libraries and for library and information school collections.
