Resource Sharing Committee webinar: "New Tools in Resource Sharing: Keeping Up with the Changes"

Primary tabs

Thursday, November 9, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:15am

Please join the CARLI Resource Sharing Committee for a live webinar on Thursday, November 9th, from 10:30-11:15am.

The evolution of academic publishing and scholarly communication is providing interlibrary loan practitioners with new sources for connecting users with the published forms of information they need. The wide variety of these sources presents challenges in discovery, referral, and other areas. Drawing on the presenter’s experience in a high-volume interlibrary loan operation at a medical library, this discussion will review a selection of these new sources and address some of the relevant issues involved. Sources to be discussed include gold and green open access material, digital libraries containing scanned public domain literature, institutional repositories, and social media sites for sharing academic literature.

Kevin O'Brien is the head of the Access to Resources Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago's Library of the Health Sciences, and he holds the rank of Clinical Assistant Professor. He has worked for many years in academic and medical libraries, specializing in interlibrary loan, and he is a facilitator for the Medical Library Association's Resource Sharing Special Interest Group. O'Brien recently published an article titled "Large scale book and journal digitization projects and interlibrary loan service: opening the discussion", which appears in the Journal of Interlibrary Loan, Document Delivery, and Electronic Reserves.
