11 Research Impact Things’ is a collection of modules for upskilling librarians on the use of a range of metrics around research impact.
The AUS Scholarly Communications Librarian worked through the IATUL ‘Things’ (https://iatulimpactthings.info/) with our librarians.
Delivered in 5 online sessions over two months, we used live demonstrations, etherpad notes and guest speakers to engage librarians.
Consequently, librarians felt more comfortable dealing with enquiries on these topics, and understood the Scholarly Communications Librarian role and responsibilities better.
This session will provide an overview of the ‘11 Research Impact Things’ for AMICAL colleagues to upskill themselves or their organizations.
