Librarians supporting applied research and discipline-specific researchers

Ye Li, University of Michigan; Professor Jan Reedijk, University of Leiden; Oliver Renn, ETH Zurich
This webinar will explore how librarians are supporting researchers in applied and discipline-specific areas. Presenters will include three chemistry professionals, two who have gone into library sciences supporting fellow researchers and one who has pursued a distinguished research career in chemistry. They will examine whether researchers' needs vary with their involvement in applied versus basic research, and examine the impact on the librarian's skill set and tools. Other key themes include how important is it for a librarian to have an educational background in the disciplines they support, and how do they stay up-to-date in their field?

    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.

  • How libraries are raising researchers’ reputations (Asia Pacific focus) Recorded: Dec 5 2013 53 mins
    With the continued extension of the academic research enterprise – both locally and globally – librarians are being asked to support researchers and the research organization with new services. Learn how three librarians from leading Asia Pacific institutions are implementing data, tools and strategies to advance their researchers and strengthen their organizations' research mission during a free Library Connect webinar.
  • How librarians can help researchers navigate open access choices Recorded: Oct 17 2013 60 mins
    Open access publishing has grown dramatically in the last five years. However, as with many paradigm shifts, there are growing pains associated, including predatory journal practices and lack of clarity around terms and options.

Librarians will be able to help their researchers take advantage of OA publishing for discovery and dissemination of their own research, while concurrently ensuring that scholars make informed choices.

    Main topics:
    • Ethical and non-ethical OA publishing approaches
    • Tools to assess OA journal quality
    • Data sources for OA and the role of institutional repositories
    • Open does not mean indexed - visibility and quality considerations
