WEBINAR Nov. 8 | Targeting the librarian’s role in research services

Oct 20, 2016

Nina Exner, Amanda Horsman, Mark Reed

In achieving their research goals, researchers within your organization face key challenges: preparing winning proposals, obtaining funding, building networks, communicating effectively and demonstrating impact, among others. As a librarian, by applying your specialized knowledge and skills to research lifecycle success factors you create new value and a work paradigm as a partner in the process.


In this webinar, two librarians and a faculty expert in the area of impact will discuss specific examples and steps librarians can take to have a significant and recognizable contribution within the research lifecycle. An embedded librarian will demonstrate how she uses Mendeley as a tool for collaborative systematic reviews (a form of literature review). And a researcher and grant support services librarian explores how liaison librarians can support research grant proposals. Finally a faculty expert who trains researchers around the world on a relational approach to embedding impact in their research will examine the role librarians can play in the five steps to research impact.
