Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Target Audience: Academic librarians; those supporting electronic publishing programs, preservationists, legal information technologists
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will develop an understanding of the open access movement and its impact on legal scholarship.
2. Participants will learn how to evaluate preservation alternatives for electronic journals in order to assist their own institutions to plan for electronic publishing and preservation.

The Durham Statement on Open Access to Legal Scholarship calls for every U.S. law school to commit to ending print publication of its journals and to making definitive versions of its journals and other scholarship immediately available upon publication in stable, open, digital formats, rather than in print. The Statement provoked strong reactions from law librarians and others concerned about the lack of "stable, open, and digital" formats for preserving electronic journals. The participants in this program, two law school information technologists and a prominent law library director, will have worked together for a year examining questions involved in developing "stable, open, and digital" formats for electronic journals. They will present the results of their efforts and alternatives for moving forward at this program.
