Through new frameworks, the librarians at Dartmouth have successfully forwarded connections among experiential learning and scholarly communication initiatives.We discuss creative collaborations across campus that deeply integrate the expertise of librarians into the core work of academic institutions.

Building on the philosophical framework presented in the ACRL Whitepaper “Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy”, librarians in different roles at Dartmouth have forged connections among the experiential learning and scholarly communication conversations campus-wide. This is most evident in programs that include new ways of teaching copyright, outreach around the Dartmouth Faculty Open Access Policy, and an Experiential Learning Initiative grant, “Preparing students to be arbiters of new scholarship: Editing, reviewing, and publishing in the 21st century”, which furthers our work with students involved in different kinds of publishing activities.
