Library Spaces: special access to LIS research

We’re pleased to bring you a virtual issue of specially-selected articles on the topic of ‘Library Space’.

The articles, from Library Management, New Library World and Library Hi Tech journals, explore the approaches and challenges faced by libraries in developing their physical space. This is at a time when increasing provision of information in digital format, whether native or the digitization of existing collections, may call into question the need for library space (Les Watson, 2016, Editorial, New Library World, Volume 117, Issue 1/ 2) – but, when physical space nonetheless continues to play an important role in learning, teaching and research (Graham Matthews & Graham Walton in "Strategic development of university library space", below). 
The articles are free to view until 2 July 2016 – simply click on the links below to view.

We hope you enjoy reading!

3 things you need to know about Mendeley

By Tuesday, June 07, 2016 , No comments


Mendeley recently went through an upgrade and here’s why you need to take advantage of them:

 Feature 1 - Profile
Manage your public reputation. Showcase key performance metrics of your work to the international research community, and even to society at large. Be empowered to import your publications from Scopus to maintain a complete, impactful profile easily.

More to come for your enhanced profile page: Restricting visibility of profiles exclusively to followers for added flexibility, including “non-core” research roles (e.g. reviewing, editing, teaching) and more!

Feature 2 - Stats
If like others, you’re keen to showcase and assess the impact of your work and to calibrate your success within your discipline, then take note of Stats.

Providing answers to questions like “How am I cited, downloaded, shared, mentioned in the general news, or used in patents?”, it gives you a view of how your published articles are performing. This will be through metrics such as citations, your H-index, number of views in ScienceDirect, and downloads in Mendeley. All on a single, clear interface. 

In addition, you will also be able to see 1) PDF and HTML download data from ScienceDirect, 2) search terms used to locate your articles, 3) an overview of the geographic distribution of your readership, and 4) links to various source data providers.  All in all, you can see how your work is being used by the scientific community as a whole.

Note: This feature can only be viewed by you and cannot be made public.

Feature 3 – Suggest
Stay up-to-date with literature in your research field. As a powerful article recommender system, it will help you find relevant content more efficiently based on your discipline and research interests and user behavior.
