Title: Mitosis and the Life Cycle: A Metaphor for the Transformation of the Research Librarian
Objective: This poster describes how established and traditional library tools and services at an academic health sciences library served as the “nucleus” for new services and collaborations with university researchers.
Methods: The library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) formally established a research and scholarly communication services department in January 2009. The department currently comprises two librarians charged with overseeing four major areas: scholarly communication; integration of library services into the graduate school of biomedical sciences (GSBS) and the research community; the library’s e-science initiative; and the university’s institutional repository, eScholarship@UMMS. The department leveraged existing relationships with GSBS administration and faculty and created through work with eScholarship@UMMS and library services supporting the National Institutes of Health (NIH) public access policy, to build credibility, make new contacts, and get feedback on proposed new services.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
Authors: Sally A. Gore, Head, Research and Scholarly Communication Services; Lisa A. Palmer, AHIP, Institutional Repository Librarian; Lamar Soutter Library; Medical School, University of Massachusetts, Worcester, MA
