Increasing the impact of faculty scholarship is consistently a top priority at law schools. Law librarians are uniquely positioned to offer a significant amount of assistance to faculty and law administration in achieving this goal and enhancing the reputation of the law school. Understanding the differences between the tools and techniques available to assist on this topic can be a complex endeavor. This program will focus on providing the best strategies to increase the impact of faculty scholarship. Speakers will discuss the various social media platforms available to upload scholarship, as well as how to increase findability in search results and take advantage of online identification tools such as ORCID and Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs). Audience members will share successful techniques from their own institutions.
