"This Place is Awesome!": Program, Service, and Staff Planning for the Center for Science and Social Science Information

Tuesday, March 12 | 9:15AM–10:05AM | Room 553
Session Type: NC13
This session will address how new services, staffing models, and a renovated space were created to support today's interdisciplinary and technology-dependent scholarship. The Yale Science Library and the Social Science Library and University Information Technology's Statistical Lab collaborated to gain a better understanding of our constituents' teaching and learning needs, to design a new service program, and to renovate an existing space that's optimally aligned with them. The use of data and data analysis across disciplines was recognized as a growing emphasis in science and social science scholarship. We will explain the process used and the outcome of this collaboration.
