  • Library value: student success, research outcomes & collection impact
    Library value: student success, research outcomes & collection impact Melissa Bowles-Terry, Melissa Goertzen, Karen Gutzman Recorded: Jul 12 2018 60 mins
    Join our librarian presenters in this webinar as they share their unique stories about library value starting with themes that resonate with their stakeholders.

    They will discuss how it is important to measure and communicate the impact of library resources in terms of value of investment (VOI) rather than just return on investment (ROI). They will show examples of how to work with individual researchers and departments to spotlight their efforts and initiatives via better understanding, assessment, visualization and reporting of impactful outcomes of research and clinical care. And they will show how institutions can come together to pool data and share a powerful report on the impact of library instruction on student retention and academic success.

    TOPICS

    • Going beyond usage to impact of resources
    • Tips for setting up an assessment program
    • Tracking publications with a full range of metrics
    • Enhancing research impact and the visibility of research
    • The impact of information literacy on student success
    • Connecting library programs to campus priorities such as student retention

    Melissa Bowles-Terry, Head of Educational Initiatives, University of Nevada, Las Vegas Libraries

    Melissa Goertzen, Consultant and Information Manager

    Join our presenters as they share their experiences and best practices for implementing research data management (RDM) solutions on campus and discuss examples of workflows that have enhanced reproducibility.

    This webinar is based on a workshop the presenters participated in at this year's Research Data Access & Preservation Summit. They will share what works, where in the workflow to best approach stakeholders, how to achieve optimum uptake and researcher engagement, and how to handle or treat situations where intellectual property (IP) or data sensitivity issues arise. They will discuss best practices for dataset curation and ways libraries can facilitate data sharing.

    - Tools, services and expertise that enhance RDM
    - Gaining institution-wide stakeholder, marketing and outreach support
    - Reaching and engaging the graduate students and researchers
    - Identifying a clear strategy for RDM services
    - Point-of-immediate-need services vs. advanced project planning
    - Data collaboration solutions and data repository tools

  • Librarians and APIs 101: overview and use cases
    Librarians and APIs 101: overview and use cases Jonathan Hartmann, Georgetown Univ Medical Center; Robert Phillips, Univ of Florida Recorded: Oct 19 2017 55 mins
    The webinar presenters will provide an overview of APIs (application programming interfaces - see definition below) and a broad look at various use cases within the library from updating library systems to conducting research or facilitating access for other researchers.

    Specific use cases include using an API for text mining (clinical applications) and using APIs to update an institutional repository.

    The webinar is meant for librarians who do not currently have a strong technical background, but who want to familiarize themselves with the technology and its applications.

    ----

    An API is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. In other words, an API is the messenger that delivers your request to the provider that you’re requesting it from and then delivers the response back to you. -- Shana Pearlman, MuleSoft Blog
  • Literature search on a connected path
    Literature search on a connected path Elaine Reynolds, Assoc Prof of Biology & Neuroscience, Lafayette College; Rick Misra, PhD, ScienceDirect Product Manager Recorded: Sep 29 2017 54 mins
    "What if researchers — particularly those new to certain disciplines or to research itself — could have a Wikipedia-like experience that was streamlined and trusted?" This is the question that led two neuroscientists on a fascinating journey to improve literature search, from exploring users' needs to applying cutting edge technologies.

    Students in an introductory and a higher-level class were assessed to determine where they were doing their research, their comfort level with reading reviews and primary literature, how frequently they came across unfamiliar terms, and how they handled cases where they needed additional clarity. Then they were provided the beta version of ScienceDirect Topics, an enhancement to the database that provides links within journal articles to 80,000+ topic pages with citable and trusted definitions that are contextualized within a discipline.

    Did it make a difference? Find out by attending the Library Connect webinar: Literature search on a connected path.

    Registration is required for this live one-hour webinar. It will be broadcast internationally and includes time to ask the presenters questions during the session. The webinar is a complimentary event and part of Elsevier's Library Connect program for academic, medical, corporate and government librarians.

    Cannot attend on Sept 29? Register for the webinar and you will be notified when it can be viewed online after the event.
  • Researcher profiles and metrics that matter
    Researcher profiles and metrics that matter Chris Belter, NIH Library; Ellen Cole, Northumbria University; Andrea Michalek, Plum Analytics Recorded: Jun 8 2017 62 mins
    Today’s researchers are obliged to include a variety of metrics in their applications for grant funding, and promotion and tenure files. They also develop online profiles to enhance their reputation and attract collaborators. Whether welcome or worrisome, researcher profiles and metrics have become commonplace. So how can librarians help?

    It begins with a conversation. Discover how to put researchers at ease with the notion of metrics, and what metrics can and cannot convey. Find out more about how to select the best metrics for different disciplines and at different stages of the research career. And learn how institutional initiatives, such as instituting the ORCID researcher iD and providing early education, can provide them with lifelong benefits. By helping to clarify and codify certain processes, you will ensure your researchers are their own best advocates.

    TOPICS

    - Clearing up misconceptions about bibliometric indicators
    - Metrics as a means to counterbalance other biases
    - Telling researchers’ stories through metrics
    - Metrics for different disciplines and career stages
    - Promoting ORCID at various points in the researchers’ career
    - Touchpoints for researcher training

  • 12 time-saving tips for research support
    12 time-saving tips for research support Christian DeFeo, PhD Candidate, Product Marketing Manager, Mendeley; Eleonora Presani, Product Manager, Scopus Recorded: Mar 16 2017 62 mins
    As a librarian, you want to introduce your early career researchers to processes and tools that will save them time, improve their workflows, and set them up as good contributors to the scholarly ecosystem. But it can be difficult to keep up-to-date yourself with features across multiple products that address different needs. That’s why we thought we’d try something a little different in our first Library Connect webinar of the year.

    We’ve asked a PhD candidate and some of our product whizzes to give you a quick review of features in Mendeley, Scopus, ScienceDirect and Hivebench that can help your researchers work smart, work together and stay up-to-date.
