Libraries' digital collections continue to expand, with acquisitions and resources as diverse as e-journals, digitized content, electronic records, digital personal papers and datasets. In response, libraries have begun developing digital curatorial strategies in an attempt to ensure durable access to electronic resources and to protect their investments. Panelists will discuss challenges to devising digital curation strategies, developing and implementing effective processes and sustainable technology, enabling access to digital resources, and ways in which TRLN members can collaborate around the problem. The moderated panel will consist of 7 five-minute talks followed by a question-and-answer session.

The speakers will also share how they are harnessing new technologies and using travelling exhibits to expand the notion of community to include a far broader audience.

  New Roles for Librarians [multiple presentations]

Engaging With Library Users: New Roles for Subject Librarian Liaisons at Duke presentation
Jean Ferguson, Head of Research Services, Duke
Aisha Harvey, Head, Collection Development, Duke
Danette Pachtner, Film, Video, & Digital Media Librarian, Duke
Kristina Troost, Head, IAS, Librarian for Japan, Adjunct Asst Prof of History, Duke

The Duke Libraries have completed a yearlong process of re-visioning the role of the subject librarian liaison to reflect new ways that research, teaching and learning are happening on campus. The process drew on work by ARL and other libraries such as the University of Minnesota. The resulting document offers a holistic view of subject librarian liaison activities growing out of engagement with departments, interdisciplinary institutes, and programs across campus. It will be used as the foundation for position descriptions and the impetus for a training program that will equip librarians with the skills they need to fulfill new responsibilities.

New Knowledge Management Roles in Support of a University CTSA presentation
Barrie Hayes, Bioinformatics and Translational Science Librarian, UNC
Rachel Lerner, TraCS Knowledge Management Librarian, UNC

Since 2009, UNC-Chapel Hill Health Sciences Library has built visibility and research services including training, consultation, and search assistance with NC TraCS, UNC's Clinical and Translational Science Award unit. HSL and NC TraCS are now partnering to establish two new knowledge management positions that will provide services such as connecting researchers with external funding opportunities, locating and supporting large, UNC-CH relevant interdisciplinary grants, and populating and maintaining Health Affairs faculty profiles in a growing REACH NC database The service model being used is that of the librarian embedded in her clients' work environment, creating customized, expert services.

Building Customized Web Portfolios for Faculty
Nathaniel King, Social Sciences Librarian, UNC presentation

Tenure-track faculty at research intensive universities are quick to recognize the value of an up-to-date Web presence. Despite this recognition, faculty members often lack the time and/or technical skills to efficiently manage their online portfolio. This talk will describe a collaborative effort between junior faculty and their subject librarian to build customized, easy-to-update Web portfolios that promote faculty scholarship, teaching, and collaborative research projects.
