Introducing the Scholarly Communication Section of the Academic Division: What Will the Section Do?

Abstract – The first part of this article presents a chronology of the creation of the new Section. I would like people to know more about the historical origins of the Section. For part two, I address some fallacies that librarians and information professionals face when discussing scholarly communication issues. This provides some of the reasons I had gotten involved in the debate. I would like the Section to address these fallacies and others in the future. [This has been submitted to Practical Academic Librarianship: The International Journal of the SLA Academic Division.]

The draft was ready on May 15, 2015.  It was also placed on the E-Lis server.
