‘The Chicago Collaborative was created from a conviction that we are at a pivotal moment in the history of scholarly communication. In libraries and editorial offices and publishers meetings across the globe, we are trying to figure out how to use the internet and the web and this startling array of new digital tools to once again push scholarly communication in a new direction.’ These lines from the Statement of Purpose indicate the vision of the recently formed Chicago Collaborative. This presentation will outline the background, current activities, and future plans of the Collaborative.
