Quotes and reviews

The most satisfying aspect of Scholarly Communication for Librarians is Morrison's evaluation of the roles librarians can play as scholars writing, archivists managing repositories, acqusitions experts purchasing, authorities on publishing advising faculty, reference librarians answering research questions, and advocates of open access pushing for publishing models that support availability of information over profit for private investors., Digital Library Archives
One of the book's strongest chapters examines the economics of scholarly journals using the concept of the cost per article of producing articles in various types of journals., Digital Library Archives
The book is easy to read and most importantly provides practical coverage of a topic that is of interest to librarians and other information professionals., Library Management
