5th UNICA Scholarly Communication Seminar: “Find it, Get it, Use it, Store it”


The 5th UNICA Seminar on Scholarly Communication, entitled « Find it, Get it, Use it, Store it », addresses issues related to access to scholarly information. Technologies definitely increase the speed of scholarly communication, yet issues of accessibility of contents and of search efficiency are still raised. The seminar will look at the nature of the increasingly growing and diversified digital contents used by students and researchers, and will explore ways of improving access to scholarly information. (Further information on the "announcement" of the Seminar).
