  5. 5. 5 Collaborating on Key Issues: Institutional Mobilization Task Force Issue: Access to scholarly research is key to Canada’s success in the global information economy; the current commercial publishing model is placing that access at risk. Action: Establish a task force of librarians, faculty and VPs of Research to develop tactics. Collaborative Result: The IM Toolkit •Set of open infographics describing the issue, designed to inform a wider audience •Letter to University Presidents containing a call to action to generate conversation & debate http://crkn.ca/imtg
  6. 6. 6 Collaborating on Key Issues: Journal Usage Project Intent: To examine the impact on libraries of the consolidation of journal publishing and the development of what is known in the industry as the “big deal”. Action: Collaborate with Dr. Vincent Larivière of l’Université de Montréal, who conducted similar research with 4 universities in Quebec. Collaborative Result: National Journal Usage Measurement •Institutions gain insight into usage and citations of their own institutions as compared with their faculty perceptions of journal value •CRKN learns about differences in usage patterns nationally (geography, language, size)
