Help us Help You: Creating Faculty Champions with Library Services

Successful scholarly communications services thrive because of relationships and communication with faculty and departments across campus. Open, targeted communication helps create repository and faculty profile content, and build readership. In turn this growth and impact promotes faculty and the university. It can be difficult to build these relationships, and especially challenging to keep the momentum going as scholarly communications services grow.

In this webinar Maureen Schlangen, E-scholarship and Communications Manager at the University of Dayton, and Jane Wildermuth, Head, Digital Initiatives and Repository Services at Wright State University, share how they have grown their library services by tailoring their outreach to specific faculty needs. Maureen and Jane share ideas for:

-Identifying faculty champions and uncovering their specific needs
-Leveraging relationships with departments across campus to promote faculty content
-Using milestones and impact anecdotes to continue to hold stakeholder attention
