As subject librarian for history/culture and media, at the University Library, I’m responsible for both the content and organisation of the scientific information available to the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC). This means that I’m available to the faculty as contact person.
In principle, all services are on-demand. Contact with the ESHCC as an organisation on the one hand and with individual researchers, lecturers and students on the other, provides direction for library services. As subject librarian, I initiate these contacts myself. At the same time, I’m open to initiatives from the faculty.
The following disciplines are central:
- History, in the broadest sense
- Art and Cultural Studies
- Media and Journalism
The discipline-focused service consists of realising adequate access to the sources and literature relevant to the ESHCC through
- optimizing and expanding the University Library’s collections in print (collection management printed publications);
- optimizing and expanding the digital collection available through the University Library (databases, journals, e-books);
- making acquisitions on the basis of purchase suggestions.
An additional service is providing advice, support and training aimed at
- doing literature research;
- using alerting services;
- using databases effectively;
- using the medium of electronic publishing;
- providing scientific information through subject portals;
- using digital pathways to seek, find, select, validate and apply scientific information.
Advice, support and training programs are offered through generic channels (websites, printed publications), or as tailor-made programs. Upon request, a specific program can be arranged for groups of employees or students.
