I’ve had a useful meeting with my new boss to agree my priorities for the next 12 months of development work in the Library. Here are my top 4, in order of importance.
- Discovery selection & implementation;
- JISC Orbital project (0.3FTE) – based mainly in CERD until March 2013;
- Possible JISC-funded Jerome follow-on work;
- Development of the Lincoln Repository – working closely with the Library Institutional Repository Officer (BJ), the Research & Enterprise Office + the subject librarians on the following areas:
- Metadata workflow and service development
- Building a “Research Showcase”
- CRIS-like development, bibliometrics, and supporting the REF
- Developing staff profiles on the University’s website
- Helpdesk integration (…possibly)
The following are projects—part of the current Library I.T. strategy—that I’ll contribute to but probably won’t lead, and/or work that’s going on in the background that I need to stay abreast of:
- Reading list development (project);
- Authentication (project);
- Participation in various JISC working groups as well as UKCoRR and LISN;
- Working with the Acquisitions team on new team rôles/areas of work;
- Monitoring and guiding e-resource management (ERM), authentication, and responding to user problems (this area of work will be looked after day-to-day by the Library (E-resources) Assistant (EV), supported by other staff, as part of the cover for my JISC project work);
- Supporting the subject librarian for technology in a review of the Library’s presence on the University Portal;
- Supporting the subject librarians in promoting and supporting the use of RefWorks 2.0;
- Supporting the HELS in administering copyright/digitisation services and the use of Blackboard.
- Initiating a new CALM user group.
- Co-ordinating LIG (the Library Innovation Group).
- Participating in the work of LNCD.
G’won then: what have I forgotten about?
