Evolving Scholarly Record and Evolving Stewardship Ecosystem—San Francisco Workshop

Attendees at this workshop will explore the boundaries of the scholarly record and the curation roles of various stakeholders. #esrworkshop

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.

This workshop builds on the framework presented in the OCLC Research report, The Evolving Scholarly Record, and cumulates the outcomes of the series of workshops, exploring the responsibilities of research libraries, data archives, and other stewards of research output—and identifying new alliances that should be forged to create a reliable ecosystem for preserving the scholarly record and making it accessible.  OCLC Research Library Partners are invited to help identify aspects for further collaborative investigation

Seating is limited so register now to secure your spot at this workshop!

This is the fourth in a series of Evolving Scholarly Record workshops.  The Amsterdam Workshop was held on 10 June 2014. The Washington, DC Workshop will be held on 10 December 2014. The Chicago Workshop will be held on 23 March 2015.
