[Forwarding from Gerry McKiernan. --Peter.]

                _Scholar-Based Innovations in Publishing_

    I am pleased to announce the availability of a most 'exciting'
[:-)] PowerPoint presentation prepared for the ALCTS Scholarly
Communications Discussion Group meeting at ALA Toronto on Monday, June 23,
2003 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.

    The revised presentation is available at:

    [ http://www.public.iastate.edu/~gerrymck/ScholarBased.ppt ]

In recent years, a number of innovations have emerged that seek to provide
sustainable alternatives to the predominant publishing paradigm. In this
presentation, a variety of initiatives that exploit the inherent potential
of the Web and other digital environments to offer open and enhanced access
to the personal and collective scholarship of individuals, organizations,
and nations will be profiled.

   In its concluding section, the presentation focuses on the two major
discipline-based repositories for library and information science
scholarship,_ DLIST Archive: Digital Library of Information Science and
Technology_ (http://dlist.sir.arizona.edu/) and _E-LIS_
(http://eprints.rclis.org/ ), "an electronic open access archive for
scientific or technical documents, published or unpublished, in
Librarianship, Information Science and Technology, and related application

    To expedite the adoption and further development of scholar-based
innovations in publishing, librarians and other information specialists are
encouraged to 'Lead By Example' by depositing their own scholarship within
either or both these repositories.

The 'References' section of the presentation includes four of my
publications that served as the basis for this presentation, the first
three of which are linked to their respective full-text:

"Scholar-based Innovations in Publishing. Part I: Individual and
Institutional Initiatives," _Library Hi Tech News_ 20 no. 2 (March 2003):

"Scholar-based Innovations in Publishing. Part II: Library and Professional
Initiatives," _Library Hi Tech News_ 20 no. 3 (April 2003): 19-27.

"Open Access and Retrieval: Liberating the Scholarly Literature," in
E-_Serials Management: Transitions, Trends, and Technicalities_, ed. David

[Of course, I wll deposit these full-text items, as well as other
scholarship, including this ALCTS presentation {:-), in _DLIST_ and
