Working relationships are more effective—and less stressful—when people from different areas get along. This is especially true when we share overlapping goals. But there's a gap between the desire to improve complex working relationships and the reality of making it happen.
Join us for a 60-minute webinar as we review the research report, Social Interoperability in Research Support: Cross-Campus Partnerships and the University Research Enterprise, within the context of library operations, discuss recent next gen metadata research within the context of change management and opportunities for increased campus interaction, and introduce Talis Aspire and how its integration of library management, learning management, list management, and discovery can help build bridges between libraries, faculty, and students. Finally, hear from Edge Hill University in the UK, whose team used Talis Aspire in just this way, building real-time channels between faculty and library staff.
Register to find out more about how a realistic model for campus cooperation can take you from soft goals to concrete plans.
