The University of California’s Office of Scholarly Communication focuses on monitoring and synthesizing significant developments in scholarly communication with particular emphasis on implications for the UC academic community.
UCOLASC is a standing committee of the UC Academic Senate, and advises the President concerning the administration of University libraries in accordance with the Standing Orders of The Regents. Prior to 2007, UCOLASC was known as the University Committee on Library (UCOL).
UCLA Library Scholarly Communication Steering Committee
The UCLA Library is committed to informing the campus community about developments in scholarly communications, including those affecting authors' rights, the use of copyrighted materials in research and instruction, and open-access initiatives. Since 2004 the Library has had an active scholarly communication steering committee, whose goal is to help scholars make their work more visible and usable and which conducts programs focused on the unique needs of researchers, scholars, instructors, and students. In addition, the committee assists faculty with copyright questions and use of UC's eScholarship. For further information about scholarly communication or to request assistance, email the steering committee or call (310) 206-6400.
