Building our infrastructure to expand the research lifecycle Recording

Filter
NISO Plus 2023 was a virtual global event which happened around the world on February 14-16, 2023. Building on our track record of engagement and conversation, we brought the same quality of content from 2020-2022 to our 2023 gathering. Dozens of amazing speakers and keynotes from across the globe share their knowledge and expertise on important topics for the information community.
Sharing research early and often throughout the scientific process has the potential to rapidly accelerate the scientific enterprise and provide unique insights into the evolution and direction of scientific thought. However, without any established infrastructure for early-stage research, this segment of the market is lost. Without that interconnectedness, researchers only see the tip of the iceberg. Instead of benefitting from the rich world of early discovery - full of negative results, discarded ideas, or lines of questioning that, when viewed together, could spark future breakthroughs - the opportunity is missed. This session will explore how expanding our thinking of the research lifecycle unlocks opportunities to integrate and enrich our infrastructure while simultaneously facilitating a cultural shift that relieves pressure on the peer review and publishing processes and ultimately improves the quality and integrity of research. Furthermore, a focus on sharing and integrating research objects from earlier in the lifecycle presents a more holistic view of a researcher’s professional output that allows them to advance, connect, and accelerate the impact of their work. In this session, we’ll look practically at how technology can enhance this transformation, and the role of various stakeholders across our industry.
This presentation was provided by Iain Hrynaszkiewicz of Open Research Solutions during the two-day "NISO Tech Summit: Reflections Upon The Year of Open Science." Day one was held on October 25, 2023.
What constitutes effective project management? Why is it so useful for information professionals to become familiar with and conversant in the processes of project management? This initial overview addresses the benefits and value of project management skills and a context for the rest of the webinar and the discussions that follow. Maureen Adamson will review major approaches from predictive to agile, core concepts, language and terminology as background. We will also review the overall structure of the rest of the webinar, starting with simple projects with clear goals as a foundational understanding, to be followed by more complex projects and situations later in the webinar.
This event will look at bias awareness and the difficulties of appropriately valuing diversity in a work environment. What are the implications for the library in terms of data collection, recruitment practices, and mentoring? How might library leadership encourage applicants from a broad spectrum of cultural backgrounds while avoiding any appearance of double standards? How might technology jobs in the library be made more appealing to a greater range of applicants?
Faced with a highly diverse combination of externally and internally collected data (web visits, gate counter, collection usage, subject analysis, budgets, space use, reference help interactions, etc.), academic libraries have rapidly mastered the value and use of analytics. Whether analyzing prospective subscription packages to determine their value for an institution’s research activities or reviewing usage data drawn from the local digital repository, libraries want to extract meaning from the increasing volume of library data. What does that data look like? How should that data be managed? And in what combinations is that data most enlightening?
