Collaboration and networking: learning from DREaM and RIVAL #UofGISTalks

This afternoon I am giving a SICSA-sponsored talk at the University of Glasgow. I have been invited to present by Dr Paul Gooding, Dr Nicole Smith, and Professor Maria Economou of the School of Information Studies as a contributor to the School’s seminar series.

The theme of my presentation is the development of networking and collaboration opportunities for library and information science researchers and practitioners. I will be drawing on my experience of leading two network projects: (1) Developing Research Excellence and Methords (DREaM), which was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in 2011/12, and (2) Research Impact Value and Library and Information Science (RIVAL), which runs in 2019/20 with the support of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE).

All are welcome to come along the Kelvin Hall Glasgow at 3:00pm today (Wednesday 19th February) for the talk, and the drinks reception that follows it. If you are interested in the content of my talk, but can’t make it in person, the slides are already available on SlideShare, and you can also follow the event hashtag #UofGISTalks.
