UNL Libraries 2014 Visiting Scholar
On April 22, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries invites members of the campus to attend its 2014 Visiting Scholar lecture on the current trends and developments in the evolving environment for research sharing. The lecture will be given by Karla Strieb, librarian and faculty member at the University Libraries at Ohio State University and will take place at 10:00 am, in the Gaughan Center, Unity Room (202).
Strieb will explore the implications and options for research libraries to advance research sharing as funder requirements for sharing research findings and even research data continue to increase, especially when taxpayers are footing the bill.
In the afternoon at 2:00 pm, Strieb will be joined by a panel of UNL faculty and administrators to discuss efforts at UNL to comply with the mandate. Both the lecture and panel discussion will take place in the Unity Room (202) of the Gaughan Center.
Strieb has been a member of the senior leadership team at the Ohio State University Libraries (OSUL) since April 2011. Before joining OSUL, she worked for the Association of Research Libraries where she was responsible for the development of ARL’s Transforming Research Libraries strategic direction, which focuses on new and expanding roles for ARL libraries. Strieb has a Ph.D from the University of Maryland, College of Information Studies, an M.L.S. from Syracuse University, an M.S. from the University of Chicago, and a B.S. from Wittenberg University. Her writings include the book, Electronic Ecology: A Case Study of Electronic Journals in Context and numerous articles on issues relating to digital communication and library services.
Both events are open and free to the public. For more information: http://libraries.unl.edu.
