UC Berkeley > The Library > Faculty Conference on Scholarly Publishing
A select group of Berkeley faculty and administrators met on March 31, 2005 at the Oakland Marriott City Center in downtown Oakland to discuss the critical topic of scholarly publishing.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss changes in scholarly communication — changes that are influencing the university's ability to provide access to the information on which members of the Berkeley community base their research. As a group, they discussed how to make best use of the present publishing environment and create opportunities for the future.
Lawrence Lessig, Stanford University Professor of Law and founder of the Creative Commons, and Bruce Alberts, UCSF Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics and President of the National Academy of Sciences, were among the speakers. Conference participants worked in smaller breakout session groups in both the morning and the afternoon to consider steps that UC and its faculty can take to reshape scholarly communication.
