Opportunities to raise scholarly communication issues come up in a variety of settings when interacting with faculty. Librarians can often take advantage of these opportunities to increase awareness of those issues and new developments in scholarly publishing. Discussions may result in a faculty member's use of, and support for, new services created by the library's scholarly communication initiatives. Some faculty may even become advocates for introducing changes in the institution's strategies of disseminating locally generated scholarly content. Read these twelve real life cases at http://www.acrl.ala.org/scholcomm/node/43 and contribute your own via the Toolkit comments. Help promote a shared system of research and scholarship. ## The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) is a division of the American Library Association (ALA), representing nearly 13,000 academic and research librarians and interested individuals. ACRL is the only individual membership organization in North America that develops programs, products and services to meet the unique needs of academic and research librarians. Its initiatives enable the higher education community to understand the role that academic libraries play in the teaching, learning and research environments. ACRL is on the Web at http://www.acrl.org/.
