Increasingly, academic and special libraries are being called upon to provide support services to researchers in their institutions. From data management to assessing impact, from open access publishing to grant preparation support, academic and special librarians are advancing into the research support space in order to provide specialised services and assistance to researchers at all points of the research lifecycle.
In this course, you'll explore the diverse angles of the research world, to introduce you to the drivers for change in the national research context, as well as the significant perspectives to be considered at the individual institutional level. The benefits and challenges of the open research agenda are examined in detail, as well as how new and emerging technologies offer new opportunities for research communication and evaluation. The course's learning activities encourage engagement with the tools and resources which are central to research data management and scholarly publishing.
The knowledge and skills acquired through this course will provide a firm foundation for employment as a library and information professional responsible for supporting the research culture and providing dedicated research support services within academic and research institutions.
