Upcycling a Schol Comm Unit: Building Bridges with Creativity, Relocations, and Limited Resources
Date: March 30, 2020
Time: 1:00 pm ET
Length: 1 hour
The Scholarly Communication Unit of the David L. Rice Library at the University of Southern Indiana started not with a bang, but with a lateral transition. Since then, the unit has focused on creatively developing the themes of NASIG’s Scholarly Communication Competencies within and outside the library despite limited resources. This webinar will describe that development and lessons learned to highlight ways in which other libraries that are facing similar limitations can still provide scholarly communication services to their institutions.
Peter Whiting has been the Scholarly Communication Librarian and associate professor at the University of Southern Indiana (USI) since 2019. Previously, he was the Serials Librarian at USI. He holds an MLIS from Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois and an MPA from USI.
Andrea M. Wright brings her enthusiasm for library services and dedication to campus communities to the University of Southern Indiana as the Assistant Director and Head of Public Services at the David L. Rice Library. She directly supports the library’s Scholarly Communication unit, which serves as a campus resource on open access, copyright, open educational resources, and metrics.
