peter.suber's bookmarks 2023-01-26
"The support offered by university libraries for researchers has radically changed in the last 20 years. Whereas the previous focus was developing and contextualising a library collection, research support is now just as much about sharing the output of the university with the wider world, and providing the expertise to make that happen. University libraries are no longer just collectors, but also publishers
The role of Head of Research Support at TU Delft Library reflects this. The Head will manage a team of 8, managing their work, encouraging their development and ensuring excellent, engaged performance.
In terms of content, the team head has the four following areas of responsibility. In each of these areas, the head will be expected to create a strategic vision and, with the team, develop the policies and tactics needed to implement this vision.
- Directing the TU Delft Open publishing press, working closely with the Senior Publication Officer
- Ensuring the provision of high-quality advice to the TU Delft research community on publication strategies and tactics, and helping drive forward the Open Access agenda locally, nationally and internationally
- In collaboration with the Collections Manager, overseeing the development of the library collection of journals, ebooks, databases and other scholarly publications
- Using in-depth research analytics to identify important patterns and trends in research and publication at TU Delft...."
