       2、讲座安排

        讲座一:

        时间:2019年1月16日(星期三),早上10:00-12:00

        讲座主题:Mapping the Future of Academic Libraries(学术图书馆的未来)

        讲座内容:

  Academic libraries currently operate within and contribute to a rapidly changing environment. This presentation will summarise the findings of a recent report which aimed to map out the landscape in which libraries are now operating, summarising a set of major nexuses of trends which are transforming the role of libraries. A set of key challenges and opportunities libraries face in this context will be discussed, as well as how they can position themselves to best contribute to the work of their institutions in future. The need to create and communicate a compelling vision of the library’s current and future role in the institution is seen as crucial. At the same time, libraries and library professionals need to be ready to change, and to work in collaboration with others outside the library, whilst at the same time promoting the library’s own unique contribution. The report challenges traditional library ‘mantras’, such as relying on the library’s ‘strong brand’, which often go unquestioned, and suggests new paradigms for thinking about library futures which can feature in strategic planning. Follow up work by the research team on library orientations in relation to the future, strategic modelling, and libraries and AI will also be mentioned.

         

        讲座二

         时间:2019年1月17日(星期四),早上10:00-12:00

         讲座主题:Research Data Management Maturity and University Libraries (研究数据管理成熟度与高校图书馆)

         讲座内容:

  University libraries have played an important role in constructing an infrastructure of support for Research Data Management at an institutional level. This presentation will report a comparative analysis of two international surveys of libraries about their involvement in Research Data Services conducted in 2014 and 2018. The aim was to examine how services had developed over this time period, and to explore the drivers and barriers to change. Services in nearly every area were more developed in 2018 than before, but technical services remained less developed than advisory. Progress on institutional policy was also evident. However, priorities did not seem to have shifted significantly. Open ended answers suggested that funder policy rather than researcher demand remained the main driver of service development and that resources and skills gaps remained issues.

       

         讲座三

         时间:2019年1月18日(星期五),早上10:00-12:00

         讲座主题:Open-Access Mega-Journals and the Future of Scholarly Communication (开放获取的Mega-Journals和学术交流的未来)

         讲座内容:

  Open-access mega-journals (OAMJs) represent an increasingly important part of the scholarly communication landscape. OAMJs, such as PLOS ONE and Nature’s Scientific Reports, are large scale, broad-scope journals that operate an open-access business model, and which employ a novel form of peer review, focusing on scientific ‘soundness’ only and not judgments of novelty or importance. This presentation will report the results of a major mixed-methods research study recently carried out on mega-journals, examining key issues including business models, peer review, and disciplinary community (and other stakeholder) responses to key developments. It will discuss some of the empirical evidence, theoretical models and practitioner responses generated by the project. The contribution of OAMJs to the wider Open Science agenda will also be considered.
