About the presentation

What would it take for university libraries to develop the same kind of buy-in with scientists as they often have with humanists? A major challenge is that how libraries offer research support are disproportionate to the scale and structure of scientific research. This session shares findings on scholars’ evolving research activities in chemistry, agriculture, public health, and civil and environmental engineering, in order to explore how libraries can effectively structure scientific research support. Attendees will reflect on how their library currently structures scientific research support and, building on the findings shared, identify opportunities for improving how those services are designed.
