ISU Library to host 2015 ACRL Scholarly Communication Roadshow!

You may have heard back in late December that Iowa State University is one of four sites chosen to host the ACRL Scholarly Communications Roadshow Workshop “Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement” in 2015. The application was a joint effort by Iowa’s three regent university libraries: Iowa State University, University of Iowa, and University of Northern Iowa. We only received confirmation of the date and speakers a short while ago and are in the process of pinning down all of the details of this exciting event.

You can sign up to be notified when more details are available, or to ask a question, on the event page.

What we can tell you is…
