Digital scholarship is changing dramatically for faculty, and libraries are under pressure to understand and support their needs as they evolve. In addition to their formal publications, faculty are interested in sharing and managing a wide variety of materials, from datasets to images, audio, technical reports, course materials, syllabi, and more. By understanding the changing nature of faculty needs, libraries can play a key role in supporting this scholarship.
In this session, Michelle Armstrong, Scholarly Communications and Data Management librarian at Boise State University, will share how the Albertsons library has collaborated with authors to create compelling online scholarly identities, share scholarship, and measure impact—all using the new SelectedWorks faculty profile platform.
Promita Chatterji of the bepress Outreach team will discuss major trends in digital scholarship and present a variety of ways to support these new directions. Stay after the presentations for refreshments and a chance to talk with scholarly communications experts in our community.
