Librarians Attend “Trends in Scholarship and Research” Event


Five UT Health librarians attended the Texas State University lecture series event “Trends in Scholarship and Research.” Part 1 of the event was a talk by a top expert in scholarly communication, Rick Anderson of the University of Utah. He provided information on increasing the impact of research, Open Access (OA) options in publishing, and recognizing predatory publishers and conferences. In Part 2 of the event, Anderson moderated a panel of academic administrators and faculty who discussed publishing issues and trends. The information gained by librarians will inform decisions related to resources and services offered by Briscoe Library and will be relayed to the UT Health San Antonio community.
