This is the first of three sessions of the "Building strategic relationships to advance open scholarship across your institution" series joinly organized by LIBER and OCLC.
The first session will explore the social and structural norms that shape academic institutional collaboration, particularly examining the model of universities as “complex, adaptive systems.” It will also introduce participants to key institutional stakeholders in research support. Participants will engage in small group discussions about the challenges and barriers to collaboration at their institutions, and will begin work to create a mapping of their institutional structures.
Required reading: Social Interoperability in Research Support, pages 1-15 (https://www.oclc.org/research/publications/2020/oclcresearch-social-interoperability-research-support.html)
The session will last for 90 minutes.
