Two UOC Library contributions at 15JCIDSubject: Multidisciplinary15/05/18
As part of the 15th Catalan Information Science Conference (15JCID), our librarians outlined the services offered to teaching and research staff.
From 10 to 11 May, the UPF's Ciutadella Campus hosted this year's Catalan Information Science Conference, organized by the Official Association of Librarians-Documentalists of Catalonia (COBDC). Professionals from different fields (universities, public and school libraries, etc) put "Librarian-Documentalist Diversity" (this year's theme) on the table, sharing their unique and distinctive viewpoint on the latest trends in the sector.
The UOC's experts make a habit of attending this conference, taking part this year in a number of discussion tables, presentations and working groups. Among them this year were Àlex López Borrull, Candela Ollé and Eva Ortoll from the Faculty of Information and Communication Sciences as well as Ciro Llueca, Aida Camps and Maria Boixadera representing the Library.
At this 15th edition, the UOC's librarians presented two communications outlining the services offered to teaching and research staff. These can be viewed, in Catalan only, in open access in the UOC's institutional repository, O2:
- The role of the Library's professionals in the UOC's new learning model. Aida Camps, Elisabet Cervera, Albert Cervera, Àgueda Mercadal, Gerard Pagès and Gema Santos present the support service offered by the UOC's librarians to faculty. Playing a role akin to that of a coach, they assist the teacher in finding, choosing, acquiring, producing and assessing learning resources.
- Library services for university academic journals. Clara Riera and Maria Boixadera explain the catalogue of support services that have been deployed after an in-depth analysis to provide support to the UOC's different editorial teams. The university libraries can become guarantors of excellence with respect to academic journals' quality, visibility and impact, offering a sustainable management plan in line with open access policies.
