Across The Great Divide: Findings And Possibilities For Action From The 2016 Summit Meeting Of Academic Libraries And University Presses With Administrative Relationships (P2l), Mary Rose Muccie, Joe Lucia, Elliott Shore, Clifford Lynch, Peter Berkery

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

The library-press relationship explored in P2L allows for transformative approaches in support and dissemination of scholarship. Effective exploitation of these partnerships is in the early stages and there is an opportunity to influence the outcomes to ensure they are as broadly applicable and scalable as possible. As Cliff Lynch (CNI) noted in his summary of the day’s conversation, we must do more exploration of both intra-institutional (library and press) and cross-institutional collaborations. He provided several compelling suggestions for partnerships, including new ways to promote and leverage library special collections as well as ideas for increasing discoverability of press content ...

Get @ Us! Using Social Media To Market Libraries, Assist Patrons And Revitalize Outreach Efforts, Katy Kelly, Gwen Glazer

Katy Kelly

The rise of social media created a whole new world for libraries in terms of public relations, marketing, and outreach-and it has created a new world for library staff members as well. Social media, outreach, and marketing are integral parts of our day-to-day work at university libraries.

Our duties include managing our libraries' social media channel, through platforms that can reach thousands of people in an instant. These platforms provide jumping-off points for opportunities and challenges: keeping up with social media's charge to be instantaneous, fresh, and innovative while maintaining libraries' core values of helping users and facilitating knowledge ...

It might come as a surprise that their very smallness comes with sizable advantages.

Bridging The Gap: Selected Works And Topscholar Galleries, Sue Lynn McDaniel, Todd J. Seguin Mr 2016 Western Kentucky University

Bridging The Gap: Selected Works And Topscholar Galleries, Sue Lynn Mcdaniel, Todd J. Seguin Mr

Kentucky Convergence Conference

Non-scholars often explore and produce scholarship, seek out obscure online sources and gladly volunteer to document cultural resources.Every day historically valuable ephemera is thrown away due to an ignorance of its value to research. Special Collections Librarians partnering with Scholarly Communication Specialists utilize social media to create a gateway and make certain that taxpaying interested parties do not miss the wealth of primary sources compiled over ...
