As the scholarly communication landscape becomes increasingly volatile, it is essential for new academics to be familiar with relevant concepts and issues. Librarians at institutions worldwide have responded to this need by providing scholarly communication training to their graduate students. At Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), librarians have been aided in this task by an institutional mandate requiring all graduate students to receive such instruction. This paper traces the development of the efforts of HKBU librarians in this space, from an initial offering of traditional face-to-face workshops to the program’s current incarnation as an online course incorporating a required assessment quiz. Before detailing the rationale behind this evolution, a brief literature review is presented that situates HKBU’s offering in a broader context.
