    highlighting their history and identifying future roles and trends.

We also had several TCU faculty give presentations to highlight new projects, each in conjunction with the TCU Library:

    Services Librarian, regarding her book Teaching Transatlanticism. A new website
    supplements and enhances her book.

    and Crime. This journal is being hosted by the TCU Library at the website

•	 Dr. Max Krochmal, Assistant Professor of History and Jacob Brown gave a joint presentation on Dr. Krochmal’s oral history
    project titled Civil Rights in Black and Brown: Oral Histories of the Multiracial Freedom Struggles in Texas. The website https://crbb. is the home for this project.

•	 Dr. Stathis Michaelides, Professor and W. A. (Tex) Moncrief Jr. Chair of Engineering, presented information about his
    upcoming open access journal titled Journal of Multiphase Flow and Heat Transfer. This journal will be hosted by the TCU Library.

The first scholarly communication workshop event was a success and well-received by attendees and presenters. Each day
concluded with a reception, which provided opportunities for all in attendance to share their ideas with each other and reflect on
the day’s events. The TCU Library looks forward to hosting more workshops in the area of scholarly communication and open
access, and invites TCU faculty and staff to suggest ideas for collaborative projects.

                   know is the location of the library.”
