For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:
To a potential collaborator, employer or funder, you are your digital profile. In today’s online world, it’s imperative to create and curate a professional online persona that is an accurate reflection of your skills, interests and contribution to the profession. As a librarian or information professional, you have a dual role in this online ecosystem: managing your own identity and providing counsel to the scholars and researchers you support.
The three webinar presenters will walk you through a journey from conducting research to preparing and promoting your research and finally measuring its impact. 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 your work for maximum impact. Wouter Haak follows with a preview of My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
