Libraries have a rich tradition of providing services and support to researchers. In recent years changing technology, evolving research methods and requirements, and the transforming landscape of scholarly communication have revealed a need for libraries to actively engage scholars and participate in the entire research lifecycle. As liaison and subject librarian roles shift to a more holistic and engagement-focused model, it is important that libraries provide them with the tools and resources to develop new skills.

In this session we will focus on three ways in which the NCSU Libraries created and supported relevant training and opportunities for research librarians to gain the expertise necessary to embrace new roles and deeper collaboration across the research enterprise. Examples include: the Data and Visualization Institute for Librarians, the Visualization Discussion series, and the Research Data Committee.

Attendees will be invited to share their perspectives and experiences around the evolving role of research librarians and the training and resources necessary for gaining new skills. Participants will learn about some of the skills necessary for increased engagement, take away ideas for creating peer to peer learning opportunities, and gain insights about the challenges and opportunities related to supporting and developing new skills.
