These are the slides and discussions from a workshop at UKSG2017.
ABSTRACT: This workshop will explore the skill sets for scholarly communication including questions about future requirements, the language we are using in this space and, beyond skills, what type of people are suited to different aspects of librarianship. Scholarly communication requires people who are able to be flexible in their approach, rather than ‘rule followers’, which may mean a fundamental shift in the library workforce into the future. Working collectively, the session will consider the implications for upskilling our ‘legacy’ workforce.
