KPA 6: Communication, Outreach and Open Science

Communication

Communication activity should become the core of how the Library creates a family of staff and users who feel part of a UCL-wide library community.

Outreach

Outreach activities to new communities become embedded in the life of the Library; and Citizen Science is a new outreach activity, where the citizen engages with research agendas.

Open Science

Extend Library Services’ support for Open Science, a global agenda which offers new ways of undertaking research/sharing research outputs, strengthening educational agendas and rewarding engagement in Open Science practices.
