Both the way research is disseminated and interacted with is changing dramatically. New mandates to share articles and even raw research data is driving new forms of publishing and new ways of using research. In this environment there are a breadth of new techniques and tools that librarians can utilize to support the researchers at their institution. Elaine Westbrooks, Associate University Librarian for Research, University of Michigan is helping to build the university’s framework for supporting their billion-dollar research enterprise. The framework includes a comprehensive research data management strategy complete with a data repository, identifiers including DOIs and ORCIDs as well as novel ways to document the impact of research using altmetics, social media, and researcher profiles. The speaker will provide details regarding the methods being piloted with researchers who are looking for new ways to promote, preserve, and share their scholarly assets. Figshare gives researchers a way to store, share and discover research by storing output in the cloud. Plum Analytics tracks altmetrics, usage and citations about research output to give researchers a clearer picture of how the world is interacting with it. Three individuals will come together at this panel to discuss what librarians can do to assist their researchers get credit for their work.
