Support & Services Foster Research Conversations Research
as a Conversation Collective process to increase knowledge
Ongoing (researchers past and present)
Collaborative and interdisciplinary research are inherently conversational
New research is most valuable when it builds on and connects to previous theories and data
Research must be discoverable!
Traditional methods of dissemination can slow the conversation... Support collaborative research spaces
Connect researchers with similar interests and questions
Make past research easily discoverable
Help disseminate current research broadly
Promote new models
Speed the dissemination process
Increase research's reach
Increase research's audience Mission, Vision, Strategic Plan
Build on existing expertise, strengths, and opportunities:
Expert librarians and library staff
CUNY Academic Commons
GC Digital Initiatives
Questions to ask... Altmetrics and bibliometrics
Consult with faculty, students
Important for Digital Humanities, non-traditional fields, recent scholarship Educate and promote all resources
(IR, catalog, databases, digital collections)
Resource Discovery System (RDS)
Search engine optimization (SEO)
IR / OA directories
OpenDOAR CUNY Academic Commons
Library presence in the AC...
As liaisons, library contacts
Maintain currency with departments (blogs, groups)
How can IR interface with AC?
Faculty profile links to articles
Mendeley Digitization of key, unique print/tangible materials
Murray Hill, Herald Square, Erie Canal
Potential research material
Preserving born-digital materials
Faculty/student work deposited in IR
Other born-digital material (faculty blogs, websites, data...)
migration vs. emulation What's the priority?
Tape-backup at remote location
Permanent, non-public archival
Immediately retrievable, usable
Network/IR storage (downloadable)
Grant requirements for storage
Confidentiality and privacy concerns
Type of data, size and number of datasets

More evolving all the time Considerations Does [insert potential resource or service] support the mission of the Mina Rees Library and the CUNY GC?
Is it meaningful?
What may we have to cut or reduce in order to accomplish this?
