Bringing the Fieldwork Notes of the Pioneers of Anthropology to an Open Access Database: Innovating New Funding Models for Open Access
In April of 2016 Alexander Street will launch Anthropological Fieldwork Notes Online and the Anthropology Commons. This cross-searchable, integrated to an Open Access and for-fee database creates an unprecedented publishing solution for primary sources and archival materials in the field of anthropology.  This 200,000+ page collection is an ambitious effort to find, license and digitize the fieldwork notes, images and recordings that informed the writing of the seminal anthropologists of the 20th century: Malinowski, Benedict, Gluckman and more. 

Come to this session to learn about how we are innovating a new funding model for Open Access.

Research Metrics & the Evolving Role of the Library in Institutional and Faculty Assessment
Librarians have been redefining their role for the past 25 years. In today’s electronic world, librarians position themselves beyond traditional search experts: they focus their activities on data preservation and as experts for the institutional repository, as well as advisors on Open Access Policy for the university. Their expertise and understanding of complex metrics can now serve a new audience: research administration and research program strategy. In the session, we would like to  review these analytical use cases through the InCites™ platform, as well as hopefully hear from librarians on their role in the use of research performance metrics for the university.

S64 - When Numbers Don’t Lie: Telling Not-So-Good Assessment Stories to Faculty and Administrators
This presentation will examine ways to present a library’s story to its stakeholders when e-resource data shows downward trends. It will explore potential resistance from telling such stories, and the ramifications in reporting data that may reflect dwindling resource availability or a lower ranking compared to peer comparisons.
