MLA/DLA Joint Library Conference
This program presents the result of an IMLS-funded, mixed-methods study that investigated the scholarly communication programming and staffing priorities among M1 (Master's Colleges and Universities – Larger programs) libraries. Using a complex research life cycle to frame discussion, twenty librarians from M1 institutions participated in focus groups and provided structured information on their libraries' scholarly communication program, development, and staffing. Scholarly communication service and support among M1 institutions continue to grow and develop within the context of limited budgets and staffing. Audience participants will become acquainted with the prevalence of diverse scholarly communication programming and services and their assessment among a sampling of M1 institutions. Qualitativeanalysis of the focus group transcripts highlights the contexts, challenges, and future directions of scholarly communication programming and services among the M1 institutions.
