Reaching academics
Reaching Academics

  • How should RGAs be communicating with academics?

  • What should be the key messages that RGAs convey in doing so?

  • Are there any local or national mechanisms – such as Quality Assessment procedures, staff development opportunities, etc that could provide levers for RGA attempts at outreach?

  • How can these complement rather than confuse local attempts to influence academics’ use of electronic resources and services?


  • What do we believe the community (librarians, academics, researchers & students) need?

  • What would best support individual institutions?

  • Problems / pitfalls?

  • What are the consequences of doing nothing?


Current activities include institutional workshops, national “road show” events, presentations at seminars & conferences (generic & subject specific), production of training materials

  • Are there any other forms of training that RGAs should be undertaking?

  • What should the priorities be?

  • How can RGAs ensure they are complementing institutional training efforts?

  • How are training materials best delivered – web, print or other formats?
