The Scholarly Communications Librarian

Based in Archives & Special Collections, the Scholarly Communications Librarian is an advocate for students and faculty in the realm of scholarly publishing and course materials. Chris can help with open access (OA) publishing, open educational resources (OER), textbook affordability strategies, and a range of copyright issues from the differences between Creative Commons licenses to the rights retained when negotiating the terms of an author contract with a journal or press. Chris is also the point person for F&M Scholarship, the digital collections of scholarship produced by faculty, staff, and students that reside in Scholars Square.
