Abstract

University of Warsaw – Faculty of Journalism, Information and Book Studies

Academic and research librarians have expanded their traditional service roles of facilitating discovery and delivery of authoritative information to embrace innovative partnerships with researchers to organize and disseminate scholarship along with its underlying evidence. As the information services landscape shifts from a focus on managing and accessing bibliographic resources, to stewarding and disseminating research data and publication output, there is no clear framework to help understand this transition which eventually will seem commonplace as the information age evolves more fully to the data age. This presentation highlights an important shift for librarians from servant/client relationships to more entrepreneurial roles and partnerships focused on designing and stewarding scholarship and research data as an important institutional asset. It will review the collective efforts of librarians to prepare to explore, adapt, and implement emerging digital scholarship services through the lens of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) and then offer a case study of how librarians at one U.S. mid-sized research university are reshaping their role to participate throughout the research life cycle.
