Change log



Presentation given at CPD25 Staff Development Forum 2017. The nature of the academic library is undergoing a fundamental shift as librarians move away from traditional roles and towards a more active role in supporting the research community at their institutions. However in order to take full advantage of these opportunities library staff need to develop their knowledge of and confidence in the emerging area of scholarly communication. With both time and budgets tight how do managers prepare their staff for future work in academic libraries? This talk will explore some of the methods used by the Office of Scholarly Communication in Cambridge to develop staff knowledge on topics such as Open Access and Research Data Management, discuss the challenges in implementing such programmes and how these can be overcome.
