Expanding the librarian role: integration into the faculty narrative
MetadataShow full item record
Current academic expectations for evaluation, promotion, and even tenure, have created an environment that places more emphasis on the ability of faculty to demonstrate their impacts on a scholarly level. Although many faculty would agree on specific indicators of impact such as publications and citations, these two gauges may not necessarily be exhaustive, and the increasing multitude of tools potentially used to locate and identify them may be unknown to faculty. this paper will provide information on the needs of academic faculty in reporting the scope and breadth of their scholarly activities, and how leveraging the knowledge, practices, and skill-sets of librarians helps to achieve the desired outcomes.
