As the Instruction & Scholarly Communication Librarian, my work at Stevens includes introducing and establishing successful research practices and information literacy with students, faculty, and staff in the Instruction program, and developing a scholarly communication program here at the library to keep faculty and researchers aware of current developments in academic publishing.
