We are pleased to announce that the 2016-2017 Scholarly Communications Experts Directory is now available. We invite you to take advantage of this resource to connect with experts on a variety of topics as you plan your fall outreach strategies, Open Access Week events, upcoming publications and presentations, and your other scholarly communication activities. According to Rob Sieczkiewicz at Susquehanna University,
“Using the  Scholarly Communications Experts directory was indispensable to me both in selecting a repository platform and implementing Digital Commons. All the experts I contacted were generous with their time, happily answered my questions, and gave me valuable, real world examples and advice.”
This edition includes responses from a diverse group of over 130 Digital Commons users who have expertise in 34 different areas of scholarly communications and repository management. Whether, like Rob, you’re just getting started, or you have a specific need, you can use the directory to find an expert on any scholarly communications issue from library-led publishing and ETD management to providing digital support for specific groups and organizations.
Each expert is profiled with his or her complete scholarly communications record, specific areas of focus, and publications on relevant topics.
You can access the directory by downloading the PDF below. Feel free to share it with your colleagues! Questions or comments? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
