Catherine Davidson named visiting librarian @ Scholars Portal

This just in:

“Beginning Sept 3, Scholars Portal will be hosting Catherine Davidson, Associate University Librarian from York University, as our first visiting librarian for the project. We are very happy that Catherine has agreed to devote her expertise and precious sabbatical time to tackle some important and long-standing research and service issues related to Scholars Portal. There are four key areas Catherine will be working on:

  • Developing an evaluation strategy for Scholars Portal services and working with ARL to evaluate the results of the forthcoming MINES survey
  • Exploring and evaluating new procurement models that the Scholars Portal ebook service will open up for OCUL schools
  • Developing communication strategies for Scholars Portal to improve the flow of information between the project and librarians and staff at the OCUL schools
  • Participating with CRL in the evaluation and auditing of Scholars Portal archiving services and helping the OCUL community better understand the issues and implications of Scholars Portal as a Trusted Digital Repository

I know many of you will be keen to speak with Catherine about these initiatives. Catherine will be spending some portion of each week working with Scholars Portal staff and will have an office in Robarts Library for work and consultation. ”
