The Role of the Library in Supporting Open and Connected Research and Researchers

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Researchers and institutions are facing increasing pressures, from funders and other stakeholders, to make their work openly available and engage with a broader audience. In the last 20 years the role of the library has changed dramatically - from a place of reference to a one-stop shop for a variety of services, support and access to materials, several of which are often offered on a remote basis. How can libraries and librarians best leverage the tools and data now available to help their faculty and institution: • Comply with funder mandates • Gain visibilty for their work • Demonstrate their expertise • Attract new funding • Identify appropriate collaborators • Make informed publication decisions • Improve their teaching • Align activities and efforts with strategic goals
