What role do university librarians play in access to research?

What role do university librarians play in access to research? | Rethinking Scholarship | Scoop.it

With open access changing the ways research is disseminated, how can libraries make the most of resources and what support do they need?

 

Librarians have numerous roles to play in the growing digital environment, with the move towards open access prompting a profound change in the way university libraries manage their scholarly communications – not least in how they use online repositories for publishing and opening up access to research.

 

What are the responsibilities of the university library and librarian when it comes to university research access? How can librarians continue to add value through research repositories? And what support and collaboration do they need from their own institutions and the wider higher education sector?

This study explores the properties of these social media-based metrics or "altmetrics", sampling 24,331 articles published by the Public Library of Science.
