NISO Webinar, The Library’s Role in the Research Process and Workflow, March 9, 2022

For some 30 years now, libraries have been refashioning the ways in which they serve their communities. While books and journals are still part and parcel of their services, research libraries also support more complicated channels of information dissemination and engagement. What does this mean for the functions academic libraries serve? After years of library assessment activities, what are the critical services and contributions that libraries bring to their institutions? And how can library service providers best support these? Confirmed participants in this event (among others) include: G. Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Research Data Management, Johns Hopkins University; Michael Levine-Clark, Dean and Director at University of Denver Libraries, University of Denver; Judith C. Russell, Dean of University Libraries, University of Florida; and Suzanne Wones, Associate University Librarian for Discovery and Access, Harvard University.
