Scholarly Communication within the Library Survey

Taylor & Francis commissioned research in October 2013 to specifically examine how to meet user needs and expectations in the library. Primary research findings revealed that 65% of survey respondents take a reactive approach to conducting user-research in the library to understand their end-users’ resource needs – relying on professors or university faculty to approach library staff with requests.
NELLCO's insight:

Take the survey.

The Faculty Lounge: Law Professors, Law Students and Depression . . . A Story of Coming Out (Part 1)

The Faculty Lounge: Law Professors, Law Students and Depression . . . A Story of Coming Out (Part 1) | Library Collaboration | Scoop.it
Back in January, CNN ran a piece entitled “Why Are Lawyers Killing Themselves.” In general, the piece focused on a spate of lawyer suicides in Kentucky and other states over the last several years. Most of the suicides (15 since 2010) in Kentucky were seemingly successful lawyers. One was a relatively young (37) and popular adjunct professor at NKU’s Chase College of Law.

In the months since CNN ran its story, I have (unsuccessfully) tried to shake the feeling that we (as lawyers, law professors and the mentors of a generation of law students) missed out on a valuable opportunity to more fully address an issue that is critical to the legal profession. So, when the opportunity to post here came along, I decided to revisit this issue and to do so in a personal way.
