Outreach – fast, frequent, and fun!

Helen Sjöblom, Linda Hammarbäck, Eva Hessman

Biomedical Library, Gothenburg University Library, Sweden

Introduction
Starting 2015, we weekly arrange 20-minutes-drop-in-sessions as a way to reach out to our researchers and PhD-students. We have 8-9 themes per semester and always run the same content for two weeks. Please use the link https://tinyurl.com/3jr6v9uk for themes spring -22

Program Description
When we set the themes for the sessions, our focus is always on services and tools we believe our researchers will benefit from. We often take the opportunity to highlight support services we feel the faculty lack awareness of and where our competence is not well recognized. Once or twice per semester we choose a tool or a phenomenon we ourselves wish to explore. Setting up a 20-minutes-session gives us a deadline, and is an excellent opportunity to broaden our knowledge base.

Pre-covid the sessions were held at faculty premises. During the pandemic we went digital using Zoom, and we will probably continue with Zoom partly because the number of participants rised.


Conclusion
To be able to run these sessions as part of our weekly schedule we make sure to mix stuff we already know with new content we need to learn. 20 minutes pass fast, and it is really important to get to the core of the matter. We have also learned that you do not have to know everything about something to be able to talk about it for 20 minutes

Prepaid APC:s as whitelists – Jeopardizing the Academic Libray brand

Helen Sjöblom, Linda Hammarbäck, Eva Hessman

Biomedical Library, Gothenburg University Library, Sweden

Introduction
Article processing charges (APC:s) are increasingly being paid by institutions, or on a national consortia level. Signed agreements between academic libraries and publishers are then being posted on library websites to let researchers know if they can get the full APC paid for, or a discount with the journal of their choice. On the websites, agreements are usually presented as a database or list of publishers, and often accompanied by a journal search/checker tool. Researchers trust these lists to be reliable sources of reputable OA publishers.


Description

The Library role is in transition. We have always been curating our library collections, but are now tending to curate academic publications as well. This is a new emerging role for the library.

There are many aspects to consider when entering this new role.

  • Demand – are we consciously curating, and should we curate publications? – providing APC:s also implies promoting publishers by steering our researchers towards our selection of publishing venues.
  • Research and Publishing ethics & quality control – avoid beeing associated with questionable publishers
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Coverage – a fair selection of publishing alternatives for all disciplines

Conclusion
The balance in giving people what they want, and maintaining quality standards, can make decisions related to read and publish deals a difficult task. Statistical data, based on institutional publications might reveal unexpected proportions being published with less reputable publishers. Agreements entered with such market players will inevitably mitigate their questionnable publishing practices. When researchers find them in the library APC-database, they will accordingly assume that the publisher is ok.

Put information retrieval in context - Mandatory Doctoral course at the faculty of Medicine, University of Gothenburg

Helen Sjöblom, Linda Hammarbäck, Eva Hessman

Biomedical Library, Gothenburg University Library, Sweden

Introduction

The foundation of all our teaching is of course searching for information but we have the ambition to put information retrieval in a larger context for the doctoral students. We want them to be knowledgeable about their subject area - what has been published before, the research methods used, relevant journals and authors, how to avoid research waste and finding the gaps – to create a true understanding for their subject specific research landscape!


Program Description
To achieve this we dedicated our workshops to three themes. Workshop one focuses on the research landscape, workshop two on information searching and workshop three on information management. We feel that the course makeover structures the content in a workflow that better corresponds to the research process. It motivates the students and gives them a deeper understanding of their role in the research landscape.

Conclusion
Teaching the content has become more clear and straightforward for us but also for the students. We do think that we have managed to present the context of searching so that it is more than just a technical task to be taught.
