Reflections on the First “21st Century Research @ Hunter College Libraries” Event

We recently concluded the inaugural event of out 21st Century Research@ Hunter College Libraries event. This event focusing on “Managing and Sharing your Digital Research”, was a remarkable success. The turnout (approximately 73% of reserved spaces were filled) and response has been remarkable and hopefully will give me the energy and drive to continue to work with my colleagues to create new, innovative and useful programming for the Library, and for the general Hunter Community.
The series itself grew out of my interest in creating and growing a project in Digital Research and Scholarly Communication. My initial efforts in generating these programs at Hunter College Libraries, led me to reach out to colleagues and to create the “Digital Research and Scholarly Communications Planning Group”. This group is working diligently to ensure that Hunter College Libraries is an active partner in the research community here at Hunter College (CUNY).

If you interested in the event but couldn’t make it check out the library blog post here:

If you did attend we would love your feedback.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to do so yet, please take a moment and take our quick evaluation survey found here:

If you want to learn more about the tools and techniques covered you can check out the research guide I created to help new users select what bibliographic management software is right for their needs here:

Also, if you want to connect with me, a planning group member or a fellow researcher/scholar who has attended a 21st Century Research @ Hunter College Libraries event you can connect to the CUNY Commons group I created here:

If you have any suggestions for future events, or just want to learn more about what we do  please feel free to leave your suggestions at the commons group, or drop me an email at jca0033 AT hunter
