ASERL Scholarly Communications Interest Group Community Call: Libraries In Process

Librarians do a great job of working together to brainstorm new ideas. They have mastered the art of reporting back their successes and sharing their frustrations. But what about the middle? Do we share the process, the works in progress? The ASERL Scholarly Communications Interest Group wants to help you share your Libraries In Process. Our new community call will be a forum for 2-3 librarians and information professionals to share the work they are immersed in and give their peers the chance to provide feedback and advice in the moment.

Our first Libraries In Process call is on a perennial Fall topic, outreach. Join us Friday, October 4 at 2EDT/1CDT to for a conversation on reaching out and garnering interest. Curious about the types of projects you might hear about? The University of Virginia Library is in the middle stages of an ORCID outreach project. Faculty are encouraged to verify their affiliation with the University of Virginia using  a UVA-ORCID Connector web service. The outreach mechanism is personalized invitation letters to UVA authors with known ORCIDs with an embedded link to the Connector service, and a link to an ORCID at UVA information page, https://www.library.virginia.edu/services/orcid-at-uva.

If you’re interested in taking 10 minutes to share your current outreach efforts, how you got there, and your sense of how things are going, reach out to Jason Burton or Ellen Ramsey to sign up to share. Those not sharing, stay on the line. We’ll open the floor for constructive feedback, comments, and questions.

Do you have a scholarly communications topic you’d like to hear discussed? Suggest a topic for a future call by letting Jason Burton or Ellen Ramsey know.
