Bonn to speak at The Collective

Maria Bonn, Associate Professor

Senior Lecturer Maria Bonn will discuss scholarly communication at The Collective, an annual gathering of librarians, archivists, and library staff at academic libraries. The 2018 Collective, which will take place from February 28-March 1 in Knoxville, Tennessee, will center around the theme, "The Library as Test Kitchen," and feature a "test kitchen environment" where participants can "try out 'recipes' for next generation librarianship."

Bonn will present "Soup from a Stone: Collective Development of Open Educational Resources that Welcome Undderrepresented Voices to Scholarly Communication" with Josh Bolick, scholarly communication librarian at the University of Kansas Libraries, and William Cross, director of the Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center at North Carolina State University (NCSU) Libraries.

Communication is about community and collaboration. Here we ask our community to communicate about the ideal systems of scholarly communication by collaborating to design and share an open learning object like a video, lesson plan, game, or hack that increases representation and access for LIS students and teachers. Let’s learn together about open education and open licensing, and how they might be leveraged to incorporate our practitioner knowledge into LIS instruction.

In addition to scholarly communication and publishing, Bonn's teaching and research interests include networked communication and the economics of information. Prior to joining the iSchool, she served as associate university librarian for publishing at the University of Michigan Library, where she managed the University of Michigan Press and Scholarly Publishing Office. She also has served as assistant professor of English at institutions both in the United States and abroad. Bonn received a bachelor's degree from the University of Rochester, master's and doctoral degrees in American literature from SUNY Buffalo, and a master's in information and library science from the University of Michigan.
