Academic libraries increasingly align services alongside research and learning cycles of scholarship. At Queen’s University, the Library and University Research Services (URS) work together to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of this alignment. With a focus on scholarly publishing and research impact, this paper will situate our case study in the context of university and library governance models and current Canadian research policies.

We will focus on selected initiatives, how they pool resources, exploit expertise, and give researchers single and clear points of information and service. One current project aligns the library’s research repository, QSpace, with new research administration tools, Tools for Research at Queen’s (TRAQ). Amongst other modules, TRAQ includes a C.V. and annual reporting module, Faculty 180. There are several goals for this project including: notifying faculty at point of grant receipt of national funder open access mandates, populating curriculum vitae from library databases, and automating deposit of articles from Faculty180 into the repository, QSpace, minimizing effort on faculty. In addition to technical coordination, liaison librarians and URS trainers will deliver joint training to faculty on processes for seamless population of all aspects of their scholarly achievement into both the C.V. repository and QSpace. Through these initiatives both Queen’s researchers and administrators benefit from a comprehensive profile of institutional outputs with the potential for greater exposure of open access publications. A Scholarly Communications Working Group with membership from the Library and URS oversees events like Open Access Day and ongoing advocacy. More recently we are coordinating institutional research metrics generation and reporting, along with Institutional Research and Planning.

We will conclude by sharing plans for future projects to continue leading together at Queen’s University.
