Digital Engagement in the Era of Disruption: (Re)positioning Library Research Services

Wednesday, February 11 | 11:15AM–12:00PM | California Pavilion Promenade, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Disruption in the digital age is the norm. New approaches to teaching and scholarship are pushing organizations to develop new services and infrastructure in support of increasingly diverse communities of educators and scholars, and their emerging methods of pedagogy, inquiry, and analysis. Libraries have incredible opportunities in this landscape to (re)position research services for new forms of engagement. From data and data analysis to assessment, from support for teaching to faculty research, learn how one library used demographic information, principles of effective marketing, and strategic partnerships to realign research services and support teaching, learning, and scholarship in bold new ways.

OUTCOMES: Identify and act on growth opportunities for new services * Design learning spaces for digital engagement Refocus assessment efforts from the indirect to the direct * Reimagine library support for teaching, faculty development initiatives, and faculty research
