  • 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.

  • Fostering research community through library spaces and services Recorded: Mar 31 2016 61 mins
    Meris Mandernach, The Ohio State University; Danianne Mizzy, UNC Chapel Hill; Yvonne Nobis, University of Cambridge
    If you build (or offer) it, they will come …

    Find out why this maxim is only part of the solution when it comes to library spaces and services. Researchers and faculty do not have to leave their labs or offices to access the information they need to do their work. How then do you – as their librarian – connect with this critical user group? And how do libraries ensure that their research community is making the most of the resources available to them?

    In this webinar three experienced librarians, who are leading major initiatives within their universities, will discuss getting to know their research communities and outreach activities to engage various user groups. They will explore how services and a physical space, like a Research Commons within the library, can enhance collaboration, interdisciplinarity and raise the profile of the library. However, “if you build it, they will come” is just part of a broader outlook. Find out why it’s important to venture beyond the library to become a true partner in the academic life and research mission of your institution.


    - Different approaches for the library to engage with the research community
    - Setting up a research commons or maker space
    - High-impact services for researchers
    - Strategies for getting to know your stakeholders
    - Effective ways to communicate with your communities
    - The magic of cross-pollination

    For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:

    What is your relationship with research?

    Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.

    Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
