"In recent years the Information Literacy Group (ILG) has seen a rise in dedicated library support for researchers, as well as increasing support from other areas of universites, to support publication and Scholarly Communication. This overlap between general research support, library specific research support, and general academic liaison work has resulted in some interesting opportunities and duplications in work. The ILG sees Scholarly Communication as a key part of Information Literacy, so is pleased to explore these overlaps in these series of webinars, with the help of our presenters from the ACRL. This series of webinars will suit any higher education librarians particular those involved in teaching and learning, academic liaison, or research support."

The blurb for the first one (March 3) says "Following the 2013 publication of ACRL’s white paper on the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy, interest in the connection between these two critical areas of librarianship has grown tremendously. The first webcast in this three-part series explores common definitions of the two topics; analyzes the intersections and objectives presented in the white paper and in subsequent publications; offers practical examples of librarianship at the intersections; and discusses partnerships that advance outreach and education initiatives. This webcast provides participants with a shared theoretical foundation on which the rest of the series is built."
