SPEC Kit 343: Library Support for Faculty?Researcher Publishing (October 2014)

By actively participating in the research and writing process, librarians can use their subject expertise to develop new roles for themselves and devise new modes of contributing to the scholarly communication cycle. This SPEC Kit explores ARL member libraries’ activities related to support of faculty and researcher publishing of scholarly works. It investigates the level and variety of services ARL libraries are providing to support, facilitate, and participate in the publishing activities of the faculty and researchers they serve, whether through the re-framing of existing traditional library services or the development of new services.

This SPEC Kit includes examples of publishing services offered by libraries, events that showcase faculty research and promote authors, author’s rights information, library support for repository deposits and public access policy compliance, author addenda, open access policies, and job descriptions.

  • How these spaces have changed since their inception

  • Current assessment methods for learning spaces and changes that have been made or are planned based on the results of these evaluations

This SPEC Kit includes examples of learning spaces and instruction spaces; floor plans and maps; marketing for spaces, programs, and instruction; space-use policies and procedures; job descriptions and organization charts; and planning and assessment documents.This publication is available for purchase in both print and online versions.

This issue of Synergy features three brief articles on a range of topics around trends in the library and archival profession.

Harrison Inefuku provides an update about the ARL/Society of American Archivists (SAA) Mosaic Program, a collaborative diversity recruitment program entering its second year. The final article features three ARL/Music Library Association (MLA) Diversity and Inclusion Initiative (DII) fellows—Joy Doan, Rahni Kennedy, and Patrick Sifuentes—in a virtual fireside chat as they reflect on their experiences from the past year of their fellowships and the DII program.
