Raising the Library's Impact Factor: A Case Study in Scholarly Publishing Literacy for Graduate Students
McClellan, Samantha; Detmering, Robert; Martinez, George; Johnson, Anna Marie
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v17 n3 p543-568 Jul 2017
Graduate students across disciplines feel pressure to publish their scholarship, but they are often unsure how to go about it, partly due to a lack of explicit training in this area. This article discusses the collaborative development of a semester-long Publishing Academy, designed to promote knowledge of scholarly publishing and increase the library's impact within the graduate student community. Demonstrating how librarians can draw on their unique skills to build a niche service addressing unmet needs on campus, the project also puts into practice a broader conception of scholarly publishing literacy, which can be linked to the Association of College and Research Libraries Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
