Publishing, Promoting and Preserving Scholarship @ SUNY


The Binghamton University Libraries presented a collection of talks to discuss emerging trends and challenges in publishing, promoting and preserving the scholarly record. 

Representatives from the library, publishing and research community shared innovative and exciting new tools available to researchers, faculty, students and librarians. Over 60 librarians, researchers, and campus administrators from throughout SUNY and upstate New York gathered for this event, held on April 7, 2011 at the University Downtown Center at Binghamton University.

The symposium goals were to:
