*June 28, 1:00 PM*
*–2:30 PM, EST NISO Training Thursday: Making Assessment Work: Using ORCIDs
to Improve Your Institutional Assessments*

Given the recognized benefits of using unique identifiers in any digital
environment, many academic teams are moving to acquire the necessary
expertise required for capturing and integrating ORCID into their internal
systems. This Training Thursday webinar will introduce attendees to
specific use cases and implementations of the ORCID ID as a useful tool for
precisely associating traditional and nontraditional output with the
particular creator of that content.

Featured speakers include Alice Meadows, Director of Community Engagement
and Support, ORCID, who will talk about ORCID's new Collect & Connect
program. Collect & Connect aims to build trust in the research
infrastructure by ensuring that ORCID IDs are embedded in key researcher
workflows—grant and manuscript submission systems, research information
management and profile systems, and more. Christopher Erdmann, Head
Librarian, Wolbach Library, Harvard University, will talk about the
adoption of ORCID identifiers in the context of a specific research
community in close conjunction with a government agency, NASA. University
of Michigan librarian Merle Rosenzweig will talk about her institution’s
highly successful integration of ORCID in various units and web-based

*May 4, 1:00 PM*
*–2:30 PM, EST Supporting Research on Your Campus*

Libraries serve as important conduits of research. Not only is information
about previous activities important, libraries also support ongoing
research activities through the provision of information resources,
repository activities, and information-management assistance to research
teams. In providing these services, academic libraries support the overall
research mission of many institutions and make the library more visible and
valued in its community.

This webinar will highlight some successful libraries that have integrated
their services into the research activities in their institutions. Speakers
will describe offering more than traditional library services to support
researchers, and how they have become more engaged in research activities
though the provision of tools, data, resources, and skills.

Featured speakers include Dr. Paul J. Bracke, Associate Dean, Research &
Assessment, Purdue University; Dr. Greg Raschke, Associate Director for
Collections and Scholarly Communication, North Carolina State University;
and Kenning Arlitsch, Dean of the Library, Montana State University.
