World-Renowned Technologist Clifford Lynch to Speak at WMU

Western Michigan University will host a lecture by Dr. Clifford Lynch on how changes in scholarly practice are influencing scholarly communication.

The lecture is free and open to the public, and will take place on 1 February, from 10:30am to noon at the Fetzer Center’s Putney Lecture Hall. Lynch will also participate in an open informal discussion session from 1:30pm to 3:00pm at Waldo Library’s Meader Rare Book Room.

Lynch is the Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). CNI, jointly sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries and EDUCAUSE, is concerned with the use of information technology and networked information to enhance scholarship and intellectual productivity.

A leading technologist, thinker, author and speaker, Lynch spent 18 years at the University of California Office of the President, the last ten as Director of Library Automation. Lynch holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley and is an adjunct professor at UC Berkeley’s School of Information Science. He currently serves on the National Digital Preservation Strategy Advisory Board of the Library of Congress. Lynch was a member of the National Research Council (NRC) committees that published The Digital Dilemma: Intellectual Property in the Information Infrastructure and Broadband: Bringing Home the Bits, and now serves on the NRC’s committee on digital archiving and the National Archives and Records Administration. This program is supported by the WMU Visiting Scholars and Artists Program, and WMU Libraries.
