1) Feeding an ORCID: Libraries encourage researchers to register for the new identifier
Library Connect shares the experience of two librarians in promoting and implementing ORCID at their institutions. With ORCID, short for the Open Researcher and Contributor ID repository, researchers can register online for a unique identifier (ID). This facilitates full and correct attribution of their research activities and outputs.

2) Research data driving new services
Research data has always been at the core of much scientific research, though the primary conduit of scientific communication has been the peer-reviewed journal article. The article summarizes, synthesizes and interprets the raw data, places the data in the context of theory and hypotheses and mechanisms, and takes a point of view on the data. However, it does not provide sufficient details on the data to facilitate integration within larger data contexts, or alternative synthesis and interpretation.

3) Open access: Current developments, future perspectives
Open access (OA) is high on the political agenda not only in the US, but also in many other parts of the world. Many of you are aware of the OA policy recommendations of the Finch Report in the UK. Elsevier supported the results of the report and how it shifted the conversation from the need for an  OA policy to when and how a managed transition to OA would be achieved.

4) The library's role in implementing MOOCs
Academic libraries are continually evolving to adapt to changing methods of research, teaching and learning. This evolution includes creating or acquiring tools and resources (primarily digital ones) to serve students and faculty. While this responsibility is not new, the pace of change has accelerated, while resources have been constrained by the current economic situation.

5) Data revival: Old data becoming new
When people talk about data management, they are often referring to the shiny, exciting new data that is promised with a newly funded grant project. Sometimes they mean a nearly completed research project where they are interested in data stewardship; less often they are talking about preserving the data on some form of nearly outdated media requested by the researcher. Rarely, however, are people talking about data sets captured in print as part of the corpus of reports and grey literature on our library shelves.
