CALJ to Webcast parts of the 2016 Boot Camp Friday Nov 25. Registration is open to all members and will provide country wide access for those unable to attend in person.
The webcast is free to all CALJ members.
The following sessions will be webcast live from this year’s Boot Camp. Registration is open to all members and will provide country wide access for those unable to attend in person. We hope webcasting will be an important new way of offering professional development to our members. The webcast is free to all CALJ members.
Stakeholders including scholarly publishers, academic libraries, funders, and researchers have joined forces to develop a framework for advanced, robust, sustainable, collaborative models for the Canadian dissemination of the scholarly record.
More than 140,000 Quebec students and teachers will continue to enjoy privileged access to one of the largest corpuses of journals in the humanities and social sciences in Canada through the renewed agreement between Érudit and the 50 CEGEP libraries who are members of the CCSR.
The renewed agreement confirms the CEGEP network’s strong interest in the scholarly and cultural journals published on Érudit. As a result, consultations on the Érudit platform from CEGEPs have more than doubled since the first agreement signed in 2012.
Save the date:
Nov 24th (evening) and all day Nov 25th
Annual Boot Camp of the Canadian Association of Learned Journal is fast approaching. This year it will be held at the UofT on Nov 24th (evening) and all day Nov 25th.
The Canada Foundation for Innovation announced the funding of 7 national cyberinfrastructures, including the Open Science SSH Cyberinfrastructure under the direction of Vincent Larivière, holder of the Canada Research Chair on the Transformations of Scholarly Communication of Université de Montréal and Érudit scientific director.
At our annual meeting this year we discussed the possibility of creating a buying consortium for services. Under this arrangement CALJ members could band together, create an RFP of a large volume of work to increase the contract value to service providers, leading to lower pricing than what we would see as individual journals. We are now at the point where we want to gather information from the whole membership to determine the level of interest in this project and which services you’d benefit from most if they were pooled.
