Library As Publisher
Academic libraries are increasingly investing in new efforts to support their research and teaching faculty in the activities they care about most.  Learn why becoming a publisher can help meet the most fundamental needs of your research community and at the same time can help transform today’s inflationary cost model for serials.  We will explore not only why to become a publisher but exactly how to achieve it, step by step, including careful selection of publishing partners, choosing the right platform for manuscript submission and editorial workflow management,  one-time processes to launch a new journal, conducting peer reviews, maintaining academic quality, and measuring impact.  We’ll also cover the broader range of publishing activities where libraries can have an impact, including open access monographs, general institutional repositories and subject-based author self-archiving repositories.  We will close with a review of tools, services, and communities of support to nurture the new library publishing venture.

RDA & Serials: Transitioning to RDA within a MARC 21 framework (Session 1)
Over the past two years, CONSER has been developing documentation and "bridge" training material as RDA cataloging policies and best practices evolve. By June 2013, post RDA implementation guidelines from the PCC should be in place and ready for practical implementation.

The workshop will provide basic instructions for RDA serials cataloging based on the most up to date PCC and CONSER RDA decisions and practices. The presenters will incorporate in-class, hands-on exercises to engage participants in active learning.  Prior to the workshop, attendees will be expected to complete prerequisite self study training modules on FRBR Fundamental Concepts and the RDA Toolkit.  Also prior to the workshop attendees may participate in an online follow-up session on the prerequisite materials to complement the in-class training component.

This workshop is aimed at experienced AACR2 catalogers making the transition to RDA.

This is held over two days (two sessions). Session 2

Copyright in Practice: a participatory workshop
Copyright presentations often focus on “the rules” without sufficient attention to practical decision-making.  Yet because application of the law so often depends on specific facts and circumstances, this approach can leave a big gap for actual library practice.  This workshop will focus on situations and how to make specific decisions; discussion of the rules and principles of copyright law will, it is hoped, emerge from those applications.  Although common situations will be discussed in order to provide a comprehensive look at copyright decision making, participants are encourage to bring real-life problems for the group to consider and discuss.
