Associate Professor and MS/LIS Program Director Maria Bonn will present her research at OE (Open Education) Global 2020, which will be held virtually from November 16-20. The conference attracts researchers, practitioners, policy makers, educators, and students to discuss and explore how Open Education advances educational practices around the world.

Bonn will present the workshop, "Scribbling in the Margins of the Scholarly Communication Notebook to Build a More Global Community of Open Educators," with Will Cross, director of the Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center at North Carolina State University Libraries, and Josh Bolick, scholarly communications librarian at the University of Kansas Libraries. The researchers will discuss their work to develop an openly licensed textbook with the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), scheduled to be released in 2021.

"We have worked hard to bring in diverse voices and perspectives throughout this project, but we recognize that any static text is necessarily hierarchical and limited," said Bonn. "In order to open a door to the multiplicity of approaches and perspectives in the field as well as center the dynamic and ongoing work of open education and scholarly communication, we are developing a companion online community hub we are calling the Scholarly Communication Notebook (SCN)."

The SCN is an IMLS-funded project (LG-36-19-0021-19) that Bonn and her colleagues hope will be the locus for an "active, inclusive, empowered community of practice for teaching scholarly communication to emerging librarians."

Prior to joining the iSchool in 2013, Bonn 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. She 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.
