Please join us in a workshop on digital scholarship and the promotion and tenure process. The internet and digital scholarship is an integral component of academic life. University hiring, tenure and promotion processes have depended on the quality control provided by publishers and printed scholarship. Today, however, the issues of legitimacy in scholarly communication have shifted, changed and are being reconsidered by librarians, scholars and publishers. How is the University of Toronto addressing these issues in our promotion and tenure process? Have we identified all the relevant issues for librarians and faculty? Come and share your expertise with us. Registration information will be distributed in the near future. In the meantime, mark your calendars.
