Knowledge of scholarly communication issues is becoming a skill set required of librarians who have contact with faculty and students. Learning and teaching these complex issues takes time and effort, but there are ways to facilitate the process of empowering librarians with the information they need to be adequately knowledgeable. This presentation, tailored to librarians who are in the planning stages of a scholarly communication program, will include an introduction to the foundations and fundamentals of setting up a program and an overview of the main areas of expertise related to scholarly communication that all academic librarians need.
