Drexel University Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Symposium
Date: April 16, 2009 8:30 am - 1:30
Location: Drexel University
Faculty, university administrators, granting institutions, publishers, governments and librarians are dealing with issues such as open access, intellectual property management, and digital content preservation. Increasing globalization, pressure for public access to federally funded research, and new measures of informative value intensify the mix of issues.

communication venues than anyone could have imagined just a few years ago. Open source and service-oriented architecture (SOA), wikis, blogs, and personal networks are examples of the sharing ethos of the web, text-loans-uk.co.uk and are challenging the traditional models of scholarly communication.
Information is not free. There are costs to its creation, distribution and access despite the current movements to make it “free or freely accessible”. What are these costs, hidden and otherwise? Who pays? Who benefits? What are the implications for researchers? What does this mean for publishers? Who the heck is in charge?
These are some of the questions and issues that will be explored at the annual Symposium of Scholarly Communication held at Drexel University on April 16, 2009.
