Evolving Scholarly Record and Evolving Stewardship Ecosystem—Washington, DC Workshop

Co-sponsored by OCLC Research, the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), and the George Washington University Libraries, this workshop builds on the framework presented in the OCLC Research report, The Evolving Scholarly Record. #esrworkshop

This event has passed.

The Scholarly Record is expanding to include many kinds and forms of information beyond the formal outputs. Research methods, models, software, data, blogs, presentations, discussions, images, survey findings and much more are now part of the evolving scholarly record. Attendees at this workshop will explore the boundaries of the scholarly record and the curation roles of various stakeholders.

Co-sponsored by OCLC Research, the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), and the George Washington University Libraries, this workshop builds on the framework presented in the OCLC Research report, The Evolving Scholarly Record.

We explored the responsibilities of research libraries, data archives, and other stewards of research output—and identify new alliances that should be forged to create a reliable ecosystem for preserving the scholarly record and making it accessible.

This was the second in a series of Evolving Scholarly Record workshops.  The Amsterdam Workshop was held on 10 June 2014. See the Evolvign Scholarly Record Workshop Series page for details on upcoming workshops.
