ALCTS webinar: Leading Technical Services in the Future

Date: Wednesday, February 1, 2017
This webinar is 90 minutes in length and will begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Session 1 of the five-session series Re-envisioning Technical Services: Identifying Leadership and Talent Management Best Practices
Description: This webinar will consider the role of technical services in the library of the 21st century, and the importance for library leaders to understand the positive impact technical services librarians can have on attaining strategic goals. The webinar will identify current trends in the broad library and scholarly publishing environments, the impact of digital technology on researchers’ information workflows and scholarly communication, and the impact of open science on research and libraries. The potential role of technical services in driving library responses, including the curation of the scholarly record, a drive towards large-scale distributed library collections, and campus research information systems will all be reviewed in detail.

Learning outcomes:
Upon completion of this session, attendees will
* Understand current trends in university libraries, scholarly research, open science, and scholarly publishing
* Understand potential library responses to these trends, including stewardship of the scholarly record, the implementation of campus research information systems, and the provision of access to a distributed, networked library collection
* Understand the mapping between technical services librarians’ skills and those responses

Who should attend?
Library and technical services managers and others interested in the future of technical services
