    Librarians have been at the forefront in promoting open access publishing options and informing their researchers about the open access landscape. Open access is increasingly recognized as embedded within the larger framework of open science. Consequently, library and librarian roles are expanding into new areas such as open data, open educational resources and open infrastructure.

    In this webinar, Elsevier product managers will present tools that enable more inclusive, collaborative and transparent research.

  • Librarians and APIs 101: overview and use cases Recorded: Oct 19 2017 55 mins
    Jonathan Hartmann, Georgetown Univ Medical Center; Robert Phillips, Univ of Florida
    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 Recorded: Sep 29 2017 54 mins
    Elaine Reynolds, Assoc Prof of Biology & Neuroscience, Lafayette College; Rick Misra, PhD, ScienceDirect Product Manager
    "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.

    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.

  • 12 time-saving tips for research support Recorded: Mar 16 2017 62 mins
    Christian DeFeo, PhD Candidate, Product Marketing Manager, Mendeley; Eleonora Presani, Product Manager, Scopus
    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.
  • Research data literacy and the library Recorded: Dec 8 2016 60 mins
    Christian Lauersen, University of Copenhagen; Sarah Wright, Cornell University; Anita de Waard, Elsevier
    The era of e-science demands new skill sets and competencies of researchers to ensure their work is accessible, discoverable and reusable. Librarians are naturally positioned to assist in this education as part of their liaison and information literacy services.

    In this webinar gain a broad understanding of the open research data management ecosystem and initiatives underway. Our presenters will explore data information literacy needs and competencies identified for grad students and researchers, as well as a curriculum developed by the IMLS-funded Data Information Literacy research project. They will discuss how data labs can serve as a physical and social environment – and interdisciplinary platform – for supporting data literacy education. Learn more about how libraries are expanding the scope of information literacy to include open data and related tools, methods and skills. Be informed of projects and models to store, share and cite data, and provide credit for data sharing.
