Soete, George J., Ed.
SPEC Kit, n250 Sep 1999
This report focuses on the process of educating faculty about scholarly communication issues, based on interviews with 23 information professionals in 21 ARL (Association of Research Libraries) libraries. Most interviewees were ARL library directors. The summary of findings highlights the following areas: goals; understanding the culture; a basic approach--from information to advocacy; use of authoritative models; working with university groups; resolutions; segmentation, i.e., designing messages and programs for specific groups; use of data; successful strategies; what does not work; and organizing for faculty education. Reports from the field are included from Johns Hopkins University (Maryland), the University of Utah, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Arizona, the University of Virginia, the University of Connecticut, Indiana University, the University of California-Los Angeles, University of Kansas, Cornell University (New York), Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Wisconsin-Madison, North Carolina State University, University of Washington, Washington University (Missouri), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. A checklist for assessing faculty education programs is included. Selected resources, including documents from some of the institutions interviewed, are listed. (Contains 24 Internet resources.)
