The Reshaping Scholarly Communication website (http://osc.universityofcalifornia.edu), an information resource especially for UC faculty on the facts and issues surrounding scholarly publishing, has been revised and updated. The website was originally the output of the Office of Scholarly Communication, which is now inoperative, so it is now the responsibility of the UC libraries’ Scholarly Communication Officers’ (SCO) group, in consultation with the Academic Senate’s University Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication (UCOLASC). CDL hosts the site. The update has cleared away out-dated material (although reports of historical interest remain), and streamlined and added more current content. The site will be maintained and updated more regularly, thanks to the SCOs. Many thanks go to those who helped out with the site revision, including the Scholarly Communication Officers, the Reshaping Scholarly Communication Website Review Task Force (Bonnie Tijerina, Elise Proulx, Margaret Phillips, and Janice Contini), and the CDL Web Production Team.
