Author Identifiers in the Research Life-Cycle
This session will provide an overview of the role of author identifiers in scholarly communication, with a particular focus on ORCID and ResearcherID. Author identifiers help  solve the name disambiguation problem by providing researchers with a unique identifier that they can connect with their scholarly output, and use when submitting or creating future scholarly work. As an open identifier, ORCID is now embedded in hundreds of systems across all researcher workflows - funding, publishing, research institutions, scholarly associations, and more. ResearcherID, developed by Thomson Reuters (now Clarivate Analytics), is a proprietary author identifier that enables researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification; it’s also integrated with Web of Science and is ORCID compliant. After a brief overview of identifiers in the research infrastructure, there will be a short introduction to ORCID and ResearcherID, followed by strategies for librarians at colleges and research universities to encourage the use of author identifiers including ORCID and ResearcherID. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion of key opportunities and challenges, learning points and successes, including a mix of pre-prepared and audience questions.

From One to Many: Creating a Culture of Research Reputation Management
Faculty and the institutions they work for have increasingly strong needs to manage their research reputations. Syracuse University Libraries assists individuals and institutional offices in determining metrics such as the H index, citation counts, altmetrics, etc. and provides context to these metrics. The first presenter will illustrate how the Libraries provide assistance in managing one's individual research reputation using subscription based and freely available tools. The second presenter will outline how institutional wide reputation is being cultivated in cooperation with other campus units. Lastly, the third presenter will discuss the value of and how a subscription based vendor is vital to helping individual researchers and institutions increase their research reputation.

All three presenters will outline the resources needed to develop these tools and services - within the libraries, within the university, and while working with a subscription based vendor. They will discuss the challenges of capturing research output beyond traditional scholarly communication methods in these systems. Lastly they will share recommendations for developing research reputation management services at your own institution.

Open Access and Open Data, Rolling with the Times: Case Studies of Librarians Helping Authors and Institutions Comply
As mandates for open access expand beyond publications into open data, librarians continue to play a central role. This panel will include representative case studies around the variety of roles librarians assume in helping both the authors and their institution remain in compliance. Librarian contributions include interpreting funder policies and publisher offerings, researching and/or making available financial resources to support open efforts, advocacy, ensuring authors make the right choice to meet their funders' requirements, overseeing payments, and handling deposition to institutional and funder required repositories. Through key exemplar cases, this panel seeks to provide a common understanding of the variety of roles librarians have come to play in an open world, to identify challenges they continue to face in their efforts, and to share solutions to those problems.

Supporting Research Information Management in the Research University: Partnerships, Challenges, and Possibilities
Research universities are increasingly engaging in complex efforts to collect and synthesize information about an institution's research footprint. The collection, updating, and sharing of the campus' bibliographic research outputs is an increasingly important part of this effort, as institutions seek to develop external profiling systems and enable collaborator discovery and to also increasingly internally understand the research strengths and synergies of an institution for planning and assessment. Institutions are adopting a variety of tools to support research information management (RIM), faculty activity reporting (FAR), and researcher collaboration and discovery on campus. In this presentation, we will talk about the complex and enterprise wide institutional environment in which this research information management effort is taking place, including an overview of the multiple stakeholders: libraries, research offices, colleges and departments, provosts, and many others. The University of Illinois and Virginia Tech University will provide in-depth case studies about their own campus efforts, talking specifically about campus partnerships, RIM products, bibliographic data sources and gaps, implementation challenges, and faculty engagement. We will conclude with a discussion about the opportunities for greater interoperability between siloed campus systems that collect bibliographic metadata, and the important and evolving role of the library in this emerging and poorly defined community of practice.

Why We Blog - Reshaping Research, Captivating Tales from Academic Bloggers
Hear firsthand from ACI Scholarly Blog Index authors, leading academics in their field, on why they blog and the value and importance blogging plays in their academic role and scholarly communication. Blogging and microblogging enable new forms of interaction between authors and their readers. The next generation of college students are Internet savvy, but not all are information literate. How do faculty and librarians bridge students' information gaps and teach them information skills, beyond tweeting and texting, to think critically and be successful? Scholarly blogs are part of the solution and an aid to reshaping approaches to research. Panelists share background stories and insights on academic blogging.

Social Scholarship?: Academic Communications in the Digital Age
Scholars and scientists today are urged to build online identities, to promote their work on social media, and to track its impact via altmetrics. So too is academic writing seen as a social location, or a place for interaction on work at its different stages (as in "versioning," or the public composition of an article or book). Indeed, new projects for the design of innovative digital publishing formats, including those sponsored by the Mellon Foundation, are promoting such a social, collaborative, or participatory approach to complement the introduction of multi-media into scholarly monographs. But not all scholars and scientists, however much they welcome open access publishing and opportunities for networking, are enthusiastic about social scholarship. Some favor the durability of traditional academic habits and others note the limits of interest, particularly in science, for online conversation about research across many platforms. And there is anxiety too about the role of social media in faculty evaluation. This session will offer first an account of competing positions on social scholarship, aimed at helping participants see different views of our digital situation and future. Participants will then be invited to consider the extent to which scholarship can be fruitfully social, and the meanings of social scholarship for academic libraries, in these and other activities: designing and managing institutional repositories, guiding the faculty in the uses of bibliographic management software and altmetrics, evaluating emerging e-publishing initiatives featuring their social dimensions, and exploring prospects for library publishing itself.

The Sky's the Limit: Scholarly Communication, Digital Initiatives, Institutional Repositories, and Subject Librarians
The University of Central Florida's institutional repository, STARS (Showcase of Text, Archives, Research & Scholarship), has presented new opportunities for collaboration amongst the Libraries' Office of Scholarly Communication, Digital Initiatives, Research Services, and Subject Librarians. Building on efforts to proactively promote scholarly communication initiatives to the university community, these four units have used the institutional repository as a foundation for collaboration, outreach, marketing and educational efforts. This presentation will give an overview of STARS and highlight the role the IR has in increasing the collaborative efforts of these four units.

A four person panel representing four different perspectives will discuss strategies designed to generate IR interest and content from the university community. Successful ventures and lessons learned will provide insight into creating a productive inter-departmental framework that is geared towards supporting student and faculty IR projects. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share ideas from their own IR perspectives. After participating in this program, attendees will be able to develop winning IR collaboration strategies for their own institution.

Wrangling Services Contracts in Libraries
When librarians speak of negotiating contracts, they usually are referring to licensed electronic resources, negotiating terms as advised in the Center for Research Libraries' LibLicense Model and other best practices. Comparatively overlooked in librarians' conversations about licensing are memberships and service agreements. The objective of this session is to tackle an essential but often overlooked element of collections management: wrangling contracted services, be they consortial memberships, hosting agreements, outsourced work, proxy solutions, or any of the myriad other services that libraries may contract out to support collections and discovery. Service agreements pose a dramatically different set of concerns and priorities from the usual concerns, such as perpetual access and ILL rights, which dominate library literature about licensing. Few of us would think to reduce liability by striking "membership" and writing "participation agreement" in its place. Even fewer would think to steer clear of allusions to "consortium," as the term has legal meaning distinct from its use in library parlance. Attendees will engage with the presenter and with one another not only through Q&A but also through extemporaneous workshopping of key questions about best practices. Attendees will leave this session with a clearer understanding of how to maximize value on investment and limit jeopardy on contracted services delivered to their organizations.

Cerebral Hemispheres of Scholarly Communication
A panel discussion about Scholarly Presses and information/data sharing with Library Administration and universities. Information and data sharing between libraries and Scholarly publishers present an array of unanswered questions. Among them are: How can publishers, libraries, and universities better support each other in a way that is sustainable in an era of budget cuts, staff changes, and diminished returns? What can libraries and universities learn from editorial boards and sales departments and what information is useful to achieve greater understanding of faculty needs? What types of sensitivities evolve around approaching faculty on both ends of the spectrum and what data and narrative is needed to better address those crucial issues?

This session will start to answer some of these questions, presenting case studies that look at how we might work together for mutual benefit.

Elements of Superior Scholarly Publishing Support: Going Well Beyond the Platform
With Open Access platforms abounding today everyone has access to the 'physical' means to publish scholarly books or journals; however, scholarly publishing is a much more complicated, complex process than providing technical tools and web access. The traditional scholarly presses have developed deep resources and skills that service scholar-authors throughout the process of publication, distribution, communication and the awards cycles. This program looks deeper into the process of publication - and the best practices of the best presses - to better understand this critical aspect of publication in these changing times.

Rolling the Dice or Calculating a Bet? How to Decide Which OA Project(s) to Support
Presenters at Charleston sessions have had much to say about open access (OA) publishing. Many examples of and advice about campus OA resolutions are available, the arguments in favor of OA are well rehearsed, and many projects vie for library and institutional dollars in an environment where APCs are astronomical and allocations for OA support compete with allocations for materials purchases. Increasingly, libraries are being asked to move beyond advocacy to funding OA initiatives. In this interactive session, we will address how librarians gain institutional and budgetary traction for and choose among OA publishing ventures. Session participants will gain insight into how panelists are managing OA selection and funding at their libraries, and will be encouraged to share their own views and experiences. Attendees can expect to learn more about how libraries make decisions to fund OA projects, how these decisions affect existing budget allocations, and how we handle the messaging to our stakeholders. The session is part of a research project that seeks to develop a typology of open access projects and a decision-making template for choosing among them. It is linked to a Lively Lunch during which participants will have the opportunity to workshop ideas for a library collections future in which most publications are open.

A Tale of Two Campuses: Open Educational Resources in Florida and California Academic Institutions
Open Educational Resources (OER) provide a high-quality and low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks. The University of Central Florida (UCF) and the University of San Diego (USD) have been engaged in a multitude of efforts related to textbook affordability. This presentation will discuss the textbook affordability climate at the national, state (Florida and California), and local (UCF and USD).

The University of Central Florida constituents will highlight an unique partnership with three different units across campus. Macro and micro ventures and lessons learned will be shared ranging from student perceptions of open education resources to influencing the next university bookstore contract, in addition to specific case studies with faculty teaching online and face-to-face courses.

Librarians at the University of San Diego will introduce the Copley Library OER initiative and an evaluation of the first year pilot experience. The speakers will also discuss plans to improve the program including collaborating with past participants, connecting with university stakeholders, and requesting more financial support.

Attendees will come away with numerous approaches to reduce textbook/course material cost to students. They will also be able to identify and collaborate with strategic partners as they consider textbook affordability efforts at their institutions.

Walled Gardens and Digital Playgrounds: Who's Playing in the World of Text and Data Mining?
The past several years has seen a flurry of scholarly communication regarding text and data mining (TDM) efforts, from case studies of library and vendor partnerships to statements of principle regarding model terms in library licenses. While much has been prognosticated about this seeming boom in activity, little data has been collected about the actual impact at the campus level over this period. This presentation will discuss results of a planned survey of academic libraries, building upon a survey conducted by Miller in 2015 and reported in her Master's thesis. The survey will explore the frequency of TDM requests from researchers, the ability of libraries to successfully accommodate these requests, and the impact these requests have upon service capacity. It will also explore how vendors are evolving their licensing models as the demand grows, and to what extent libraries are able to successfully negotiate model terms regarding TDM into vendor licenses. We hope the resulting data will provide a clearer picture of the current state of affairs, and help spur evidence-based solutions to allow this growing segment of library services to flourish.

The ease of creating scientific research and the globalization of scholarly communications are creating a new knowledge economy. This new world economy influences technology trends and software development.  Stakeholders across the spectrum of research are engaging in an exchange of ideas and working out solutions, such as Open Science, reproducible research, data sharing/management, and research integrity.  Will these efforts amongst librarians, researchers, publishers, and other information providers solve the core problem of knowledge management? Can these stakeholders work together in the midst of digital overabundance and an ever expanding research ecosystem to help researchers create innovative research faster?
