  • Establishing a program to support underrepresented minority researchers on campus  

 

Section 2: Instruction, Workshops, and Consultations  

This section contains recipes that help librarians design instruction classes and workshops on SC-related topics.

Section 3: Outreach, Engagement and Campus Partnerships  

This section includes recipes for hosting events, engaging with researchers and establishing partnerships across campus. Example recipes include:  

  • Open Science and Open Data initiatives  
  • Open Access Week or Open Education Week activities  
  • Co-sponsored projects with campus units like IT, the Graduate Office and the Writing Center  
  • Partnerships with faculty and research teams  
  • Research data management support  
  • Events on publishing and establishing scholarly identity for female researchers  

 

Section 4: Using Technology and Tools  

This section contains recipes for identifying, using, and teaching SC technologies and tools to support the research lifecycle. Example recipes include:  

  • Using LaTeX for collaborative writing  
  • Implementing local institutional repository adaptations  
  • Using reference management software  
  • Identifying a research information management system (RIMS) for their campus  
  • Teaching students best practices for using electronic lab notebooks
