What is scholarly communication? In 2003, ACRL defined scholarly communication as "the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use." Scholarly communication experts play a crucial role in supporting the research lifecycle for the campus community.

Information Policy refers to all public laws, regulations and policies that moderate the creation, use, storage, access and communication of information. The librarians in the Scholarly Communication and Information Policy unit can help with understanding library policies related to using materials, open access, publishing support, copyright guidance, and journal selection.
