To build knowledge and capabilities for all SIS staff to be a part of the virtual and future oriented activities and services within our exciting fast moving field of scholarly communications and publishing.


To be offered to SIS staff at ANU, to staff from all university libraries in the ACT and other groups such as Research Services Division in ANU.


Through a combination of live online presentations and recorded sessions, SIS staff will share skills and expertise across 7 broad capabilities: General capabilities, resource discovery, research data, scholarly communication (discipline based), digital archives, open access and digitisation, and exploring the student experience in a digital world.

Online presentations by SIS staff will be complemented by a curated collection of recommended readings and other professional resources such as webinars, podcasts, and conference proceedings, to encourage further engagement and development.

Recognition staff will be able to log their own participation in the program and be awarded a certificate at the completion of 10 sessions. Supervisors can include these sessions in staff PDR’s.

Read and Publish presentation for SIS Staff

Presented by Katie Ferguson

The ANU Library is signing agreements with certain publishers that allow ANU authors to publish journal articles via open access without paying for Article Processing Charges (APCs). These are called Read and Publish (RAP) agreements.

This is a significant development that will enable ANU authors to increase the impact and engagement of their articles across the world.
