Openness, value, and scholarly societies: The Modern Language Association model

kfitzOpenness, value, and scholarly societies: The Modern Language Association model

College and Research Libraries, December, 2012

Kathleen Fitzpatrick lays out the MLA’s plans to ensure public access to the group’s published works, and includes a nice mention of the CUNY Academic Commons and the collaborative effort to build networked communities designed to help members connect, collaborate, and share.

“We understand MLA Commons as one key to the new value proposition for scholarly societies, in which members join the association less in order to receive its communications than to participate in them, to be part of the conversation, and to have their work circulated with the work being done in their community of practice.”
