About Scholarly Communication

The UCLA Library is committed to informing the campus community about developments in scholarly communications, including those affecting authors' rights, the use of copyrighted materials in research and instruction, and open-access initiatives. Since 2004 the Library has had an active scholarly communication steering committee, whose goal is to help scholars make their work more visible and usable and which conducts programs focused on the unique needs of researchers, scholars, instructors, and students. In addition, the committee assists faculty with copyright questions and use of UC's eScholarship.

The website features information about developing issues, policy debates, and proposed solutions. There are also links to upcoming events, UC-wide initiatives, and information and resources to aid faculty and students in answering rights-related questions.

For further information about scholarly communication or to request assistance, email the steering committee or call 310.206.6400.
