This course will discuss the technology landscape across scholarly communications programs and show participants how to become strategic tool adopters and maintainers. Scholarly communications programs are tied to key library systems that provide services to campus constituents. These tools can include institutional repositories, Open Access journal systems, researcher information management systems (RIM), open lab notebook tools, and identifier management services like ORCID and DOI.

The course will cover the most common types of tools, as well as how to select the appropriate technology for your clients based on their needs and your local institutional context. Topics will include how to elicit requirements and select a system, as well as how to assess needs and pain points. Partnering with IT is crucial for this type of work. The course will provide examples and walk through collaborative roadmap designs, refresh cycles, and role clarity. System administration and stewardship of digital objects will also be addressed.

The course will compare adoption processes for large enterprise systems like institutional and data repositories with those for one-off technology management to support digital scholarship efforts.

By the end of the course, participants will understand how to:

  • Identify technology needs.

  • Assess tools to find the best fit.

  • Partner with IT throughout the life cycle of a tool.

  • Integrate technology into program planning.

  • Build sustainability and assessment into tool management.

  • The course will also build awareness of digital object stewardship as part of the technology adoption process.

Proposed level: Intermediate.

Intended audience: Librarians, technologists, university administrators.
