The University Libraries invite faculty to participate in a series of focus groups to help us better understand the research and publication practices of faculty and to develop services and systems that support scholarly communication and the dissemination of knowledge created on campus.

In these focus groups, participants will get to see a sneak preview of Loyola eCommons, the library’s planned online resource to collect and showcase faculty work, provide feedback, talk about your research and publication practices, and discuss how the library can better support collaboration, intellectual property management, and dissemination and preservation of your scholarship.

We’ll be convening these groups on a handful of different days, at both LSC and WTC — you can choose the session that works best for you:

  • Tuesday, October 18: 2:00 pm – 3:30pm (WTC, Corboy 727)
  • Wednesday, October 19: 10:00 am – 11:30 am (LSC, Info Commons 315)
  • Thursday, October 20: 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm (LSC, Info Commons 315)

The library will provide snacks and refreshments for all sessions.

(Note: If none of the times listed work with your schedule, but you’re still interested in participating, there is an option on the sign-up form to schedule another time.)

We sincerely appreciate your interest in our project, and your participation. Your input will help inform the libraries’ efforts to increase the impact of your work.
