Using NASIG Core Competencies as a Framework to Develop Campus Support and Use of a New Institutional Repository

How do you get started when your campus first adopts an Institutional Repository?  What content and collections should you focus on first?  How do you prioritize your campus partnerships?  Who do you build rapport with first, faculty or students or administration?  These questions, along with questions of copyright management, data management, metrics, and technical support, can overwhelm a new Scholarly Communication librarian.  The combination of the relative newness and the lack of formal mentoring in our field can sometimes make it seem like you are fighting an uphill battle alone.

In August 2017, NASIG approved and adopted a set of core competencies that can serve as a roadmap for a new Scholarly Communications Librarian working to promote and build collections for a campus IR.  This talk will address how to utilize the specific competencies to help target what items you should work on and when – how to get up-to-speed on what you need to know quickly so that you can effectively communicate your IR goals to your campus community as well as how to set short- and long-term competency goals.  Using examples from her own ScholCom learning curve and campus IR set-up, this presenter will share her successes, lessons learned, and expectations for future IR growth on her campus.
