Recently, Ex Libris sponsored a research study by Ithaka S+R to create an in-depth report to gain an inside look at the role of the SRO. After interviewing 44 incumbents at U.S. research universities, Ithaka S+R developed the Ithaka S+R Report: The Senior Research Officer: Experience, Role, Organizational Structure, Strategic Directions, and Challenges.
Join this ACRL Choice webcast with authors Oya Y. Rieger and Roger Schonfeld as they share their findings first-hand. Walk away with a greater understanding of how the SRO role has evolved, current trends, and the opportunities for libraries to further support SROs.
