Adventures in the study of scholarly communications

Faculty Advisor




scholarly communications, academic research, academic librarianship

Abstract (summary)

Scholarly communications practitioners are increasingly conducting important research into the practices, services, and programs that define and sustain their work. During this session, hear about the opportunities and challenges that presented themselves during three such projects recently undertaken by librarians who have lived to tell the tale of their scholarly endeavours to better understand scholarly communications in the Canadian context. Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss their own experiences conducting research relevant to scholarly communications, and identify research gaps attendees may be interested in engaging with moving forward. We anticipate that this session will equip attendees with practical skills for engaging in research activities, whether as part of a formal research leave, or in the course of their daily work.
