Program Session

1 - A Series of Unconnected Events: A Library's Effort to Promote Research Education & Services

Monday, May 29
1:05 PM - 1:20 PM
Room: 612

Objectives
Share an institutional scholarly communication definition and efforts to address research knowledge gaps at an academic health science campus

Methods
The education and reference department focused its efforts on engaging the research community through a rebranding, restructuring, and expansion of education services. The department was renamed and librarian positions changed in order to dedicate more time to support researchers. A lunch time education series focused on technology shifted to include scholarly communication topics, and efforts were made to include data management education in the medical school curriculum. Systematic review services were expanded to include a department scoping review methodology and consultation services. Online tutorials on open access, choosing a journal, and identifying predatory journals were created and hosted on the library’s webpage. The results of these efforts were identified and prioritized concepts within scholarly communication and increased service to researchers with positive feedback and potential to build an active librarian-researcher community.

I am recovering scientist/very happy librarian. Currently, I am the library liaison for the Keck School of Medicine at the Univeristy of Southern California. Prior to working in libraries, I completed my PhD in molecular microbiology at UT Southwestern in 2007 and went to Stanford for my postdoc. There, I studied antibiotics and microbiomes. I like long walks on the beach and getting caught in the rain.
