Apr'15: Breaking Barriers: How Academic Librarians Can Communicate More Effectively with Faculty (Library Journal)

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

Every aspect of the higher education ecosystem is changing—from libraries, to faculty, to administration, to publishers. Breaking down the barriers between these groups will inform a more collaborative partnership focused on managing change together. Through engagement with both librarians and faculty, some key themes appear to be emerging, such as a need for on-campus task forces, a realignment of the library’s role as resource center, and the increased responsibility of librarians to advise faculty on matters, such as copyright and various publication processes. Understanding these developments will allow librarians and faculty to communicate more effectively with each other and collectively achieve their institution’s mission.

Join us for a stimulating and perhaps challenging, but necessary discussion.
