Discovering Scholarship: A Free Web Event

Tomorrow (Thursday, Nov. 10th) at 12 o’clock noon I’ll be moderating the webcast, Discovering Scholarship: Collaboration and Content Delivery for Today’s Scholars, sponsored by Oxford University Press and Library Journal. The speakers (Sue Polanka, John Giggie, John P. Hussey, and Niko Pfund) are very knowledgeable, and the topic — the “ever-evolving issue of how scholars seek, discover, and use research materials in and out of the library and the changing roles libraries and publishers can play in this fast-paced arena” — is one that is probably of interest to every librarian, so I hope you’ll register and attend this free event.

To register, just go to:

and scroll down to the bottom of the page. This registration form is set up for individual librarians, not for institutions, so you can participate in the event from the comfort and privacy of your own desk with no institutional commitment or bureaucracy involved.

Hope to (sort of) see you tomorrow at noon!
And more as it happens,

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
