Reorienting Library Advocacy: Aligning our priorities & futures to meet the challenges universities face

Universities and libraries are rising to unprecedented challenges in the global pandemic. As campuses transitioned to remote operations in 2020, libraries pivoted to provide even more services for remote learning and research. Despite continuing uncertainty, libraries are building longer term plans around re-engaging stakeholders and developing or reimagining services for the new environment.

For library advocacy and stakeholder engagement with university leaders, researchers, and students, what metrics and methods need to be developed in the new environment? You will gain insights from two studies on the priorities of university leaders and individual researchers. You will also hear perspectives from a university leader and a library leader on priorities and the likely impact of COVID-19 on planning and alignment. We will draw on the speakers’ personal experiences, best practices, feedback and advice on how they plan to meet the challenges ahead.

Presenters:  Corey Seeman, Director, Kresge Library Services, Stephen M. Ross School of Business - University of Michigan; Stanley Maloy, Associate Vice President for Research & Innovation, Professor of Biology, San Diego State University; Adrian Mulligan, Research Director, Elsevier; Ann Gabriel, SVP Global Strategic Networks, Elsevier

Optimizing Scopus Research Data Points for Times Higher Education Rankings

Description:  Times Higher Education (THE) has provided trusted performance data on universities for students and their families, university academics, university leaders, governments and industry, since 2004. THE World University Rankings rely on Scopus and SciVal to measure research productivity and influence to develop quantitative benchmarks for universities worldwide. These international rankings provide an important yardstick for North American Institutions and play a key role in attracting top students from around the globe.

Join Liz Bober, Library Assessment Officer, for a presentation on how Scopus and SciVal help optimize Case Western University research information and datapoints. Liz will share insights into how she uses the Scopus Institution Profile Wizard to logically organize research output data for individual departments and schools within the institution. Further, she will discuss how her team educates researchers on the importance of maintaining their research output data.

Presenters: Liz Bober -Library Assessment Officer, Case Western Reserve University & Charity Elifritz, Customer Consultant, Elsevier

Driving towards the future of smooth and secure user access with librarians & CIOs

Access to digital research information is a mission equally shared by libraries, campus IT departments, and information providers in the academic sector. Institutions are at a critical junction for providing even more uninterrupted and frictionless access for end users across a wide range of digital information and services that have been abruptly moved online. Yet surveys as well as librarian experiences indicate that there can be serious gaps in communication and understanding between campus IT and the library that have a negative impact on user experience and the ability of libraries to fully fulfill their mission. These impacts are sometimes overt and obvious to users but can be more pernicious for both users and the institution. How can the communication and understanding between IT and libraries be improved to deliver reliable and flexible remote access while safeguarding the information security and privacy of users and institutional data?

This panel will discuss the insights gained from a workshop convened by Elsevier that brought together librarians and university CIOs to discuss common concerns and to think through how stakeholders can more effectively work together with publisher technologists to build systems that address each group’s concerns.

Presenters:  Paul Schopis, Retired Executive Director/Chief Technology Officer, OARnet; Gwen Evans, VP of Global Library Relations at Elsevier; Kelechi Okere, Global Dir., Seamless Access Initiative, Elsevier
