Researchers are increasingly connecting and working together across institutional and global boundaries, thanks to networks like and ResearchGate, and networked tools like Mendeley. As research itself (not just the resulting publications) begins to break free of traditional containers, what kinds of support can information professionals provide? How can we extend actions we are already taking in virtual reference and virtual help, and expand them into these venues? What challenges are we likely to encounter? What existing services might we be able to draw on to help researchers maximize the reach and impact of their work, wherever it takes place? What metrics will we need to familiarize ourselves with, and how are these likely to evolve? Jill Emery (Collection Development Librarian at Portland State University) and Charlie Rapple (Marketing Director and Co-founder, Kudos) will help delegates explore this evolving landscape, and share experiences and ideas for how librarians and others in the “information community” might interact in future.
