International Staff Week for Libraries 14-17 May

  • How do we increase the accessibility of our research content?
  • Can reproducible research strengthen the researchers impact?
  • How do we encourage researchers to share and publish their data?
The world of higher education and research is now shifting rapidly from being analogue and lecture-based to digital and interactive. Governments, funders, publishers and universities are already recognising these changes as a springboard for more openness in both research and teaching. This means new challenges for research libraries. Join us during an interactive and hands-on week where we tackle the key themes of ‘Visibility of the Researcher’ on 14 – 17 May 2019.


The programme consists of four days at TU Delft Library (Tuesday - Friday). To get a complete picture of Visibility of the Researcher, we recommend full participation. 

Topics include:
  • Policy, infrastructure & Monitoring Open Access
  • Practical  Data Stewardship & Visibility
  • Supporting Research Analytics
  • Sharing your research with the world
  • Using Pure (CRIS) & Repository
  • Publishing reproducible research
  • Visibility by adopting and publishing open educational resources 


Do you have topics regarding ‘Visibility of the Researcher’ you would like to discuss with colleagues? Which problems do you encounter in your daily work practice? We will share our views and outlooks, and we invite you to share your knowledge as well. We are looking for an interactive group dynamic. If you wish to discuss specific topics, please let us know and we will address them during the week!

The programme is open for those with Erasmus+ funding and for others who are interested in Visibility of the Researcher. All coffee breaks during the programme and the lunch on Friday are included.
