SCONUL Summer Conference


  • Delphine Dallison


On the 26th of June, thanks to a generous UKeiG grant, I was able to attend one day of the SCONUL Summer Conference taking place in Glasgow. The theme of the conference was The Open Library: Collections, Collaborations and Challenges, a very topical and sometimes controversial topic in library and publishing circles at the moment.

As an early career professional, attending this conference has been a great opportunity for me to learn more about the background and future directions of open access publishing from a library perspective. It was also very interesting to think about the rising demand for published open data in research as well as published outcomes and the ensuing challenges this will bring in the humanities field where I currently work.
