The British Library’s Scholarly Communications Toolkit
As a national library, the British Library aims to deliver valuable services to both individual researchers and other research institutions, including those recognised by UK Research and Innovation as ‘Independent Research Organisations’. The British Library’s Scholarly Communications Toolkit is a series of ‘quick start’ guides to important elements of scholarly communications, including open access, research data management, publishing, research impact, and copyright. While addressing internal needs, they have been developed to also meet the needs of external organisations that may not have in-house support for scholarly communications. Being openly licensed and published in multiple formats, they are easily adapted to different contexts of use. This poster outlines the British Library’s approach to supporting scholarly communications both internally and externally, and introduces the series of leaflets which will be publicly available by the date of the 2020 Munin Conference on Scholarly Publishing.
