COUNTER Marketing Committee

Marie Kennedy on Jul 17th 2014

I’m extending my work with the international usage statistics standard group, COUNTER. In addition to my post on the Executive Committee today I’m joining the Marketing Committee. Here’s a picture of me, ready for my first conference call into the group! Contact me if you’ve got suggestions for things/messages/training opportunities you’d like to see the committee put together for librarians, especially related to the latest release of the standard.

It's Marie!

Oh Past Self, Come Here and Let Me Kick You in the Shins

Marie Kennedy on Mar 26th 2014

Here are the slides from a recent presentation I gave at the Electronic Resources & Libraries conference with the marvelous Anna Creech and Kristi DeShazo.

Abstract: Notes. We put them everywhere, in order records, item records, database records, etc. They tell us how to process something, mark historical decisions, and guide us in our next steps. We would be lost without them, and yet they’re typically unformatted, by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of information.
This session explores the theme of ‘notes’ from several perspectives as librarians who use different e-resource management systems talk about what kinds of notes they make, where they put them, and what their uses are.

Research Day presentation draft

Research Day presentation draft

I’m presenting at the upcoming SCELC Research Day on March 4, 2014. Here’s my presentation draft! Guess I’d better get to work.

Title: Academic Librarian Research: Survey Results Leading to Action

Abstract: This presentation records the process of taking an idea about librarians and research and following it to a productive, actionable end. Kennedy will discuss the generation and design of a survey that was used in late 2010 to gather over 900 responses to questions about how libraries perceive their own place in conducting research, and where the results of that survey have led. Results from the survey will be shared to demonstrate how they have impacted the development of the new Institute for Research Design in Librarianship.
