Faculty that are chosen for the initiative have a wide variety of librarians and library staff available to assist in their efforts. Depending on the scope of your proposal, a consulting team will be assembled with specialized skills in your subject area, licensing new resources, digitization, and much more.
Subject Specialists and Selectors
Whatever your discipline, there is a librarian identified as your Subject Specialist. This person can best help you explore the available literature in your subject and help evaluate the quality of the materials you find. They are usually the "selector" of your topic area as well—the person who makes most library purchasing decisions for your subject area. Find your Subject Specialist now.
Scholarly Communication and Licensing
The staff in SCL are well versed in issues surrounding copyright and intellectual property, and can help explain how copyright law affects the decisions you'll make, particularly when it comes to employing Fair Use to distribute materials. They work closely with selectors as they negotiate the library's licenses for electronic resources.
