First Nordic Conference on Scholarly Communication

                   Lund 22 - 23 October 2002

                 Copenhagen 24 October 2002

Throughout the world many initiatives and developments that
fundamentally affect the conditions for
scholarly publication and communication are underway. The Public
Library of Science petition has been
signed by a large amount of researchers and there is a rapid
increase in the number of self-archiving
initiatives initiated by researchers. The academic library has a key
role to play in relation to these new
developments. This means however that we must adapt our
services and, in many cases, take upon us
the additional roles of publishers and providers of infra-structural
and technical solutions for the
presentation and preservation of academic content. Publishers are
both threatened and thrilled by recent
developments and a myriad of new forms of cooperation and
collaboration between scholars, libraries,
publishers and vendors are emerging.

In order to discuss, present and analyze the problems and
challenges that are arising within scholarly
communication Lund University Libraries, Denmark's Electronic
Research Library, Danish Research
Library Association and Novo Nordisk Library and Information
Centre invite scholars, publishers,
vendors, editors, librarians and other interested to the First Nordic
Conference on Scholarly
Communication 22 – 24 October 2002. The conference will take
place every second year and intends to
be an important contribution to the discussions and to the
development within the Nordic countries.
