The research workflow is a fundamental process in scholarly communications. Understanding this workflow, and the tools involved, present a unique set of challenges and opportunities for libraries and other stakeholders in the changing scholarly communication landscape.

In this presentation librarians from Syracuse University and information professionals from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) will discuss their experiences of the impacts of these changes. They will discuss the influence this has on roles within the library and examples of the challenges faced in providing support from both the library and the society. The first presenter will focus on how the library has evolved its model of liaison librarianship to further support research workflow and specifically how this affects the liaisons’ collection development responsibilities. The second presenter will consider how librarians can support early career researchers and graduate students in developing their own research workflow. The third presenter will discuss how a learned society is addressing these challenges to support the wider community.

Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of the impacts of supporting the research workflow and take away practical examples of support that they can build on and apply in their own institutions. Real examples of the challenges faced will provide discussion points to reflect on in the future and direction for overcoming barriers. Attendees will also gain an understanding of the opportunities to work with learned societies to maximise their contribution to the research workflow.
