The Libraries’ Collection Strategies and Scholarly Communication department advocates for University of Rochester researchers as knowledge creators and consumers, protecting their rights and ensuring access to the University’s scholarly and cultural estate. Sustainable Scholarship represents the formalization of that effort, and a means for information sharing by the Collection Strategies and Scholarly Communications Department. 

Our goals are:  

  • To communicate the work of managing access to scholarly resources 

  • To educate and inform UR scholars about their rights as creators and consumers of knowledge 

  • To promote Open Access as a framework for knowledge creation and dissemination 

  • To provide prompt and transparent updates on negotiations and outcomes
