May 6, 2008, Volume 54, No. 32



The Penn Libraries announce the appointment of Shawn Martin to the position of Scholarly Communication Librarian. He is responsible for the Libraries’ institutional repository ScholarlyCommons@Penn (http://repository.upenn.edu/), as well as for providing guidance on and promoting awareness of issues surrounding intellectual property rights and academic publishing.

“The scope of ScholarlyCommons@Penn broadens daily, it seems, and Shawn’s leadership will prove invaluable as scholarly communication and open access issues continue to transform the relationships between researchers, publishers, and librarians,” said Carton Rogers, Vice Provost and Director of Libraries.

Mr. Martin holds a BA in history from Ohio State University and a MA in history from the College of William and Mary. He comes to Penn from the University of Michigan Library where he served as a project librarian with responsibility for the Text Creation Partnership project.
