14 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 291 — 2017 We learned from our 2016 projects the importance of specifying concrete outcomes, and methods and assessment strategies prior to a project’s initiation. This is valuable both in terms of doing the best possible work and in securing pools of engaged volunteers. With 2017 projects underway now, we anticipate identifying 2018 projects in the near future. We have several ideas suggested by former volunteers. We also anticipate mining ideas from recent faculty and graduate student surveys (where several issues pertaining to scholarly communication were identified) and issuing an open call for project ideas and volunteers. Going forward, the future for the Scholarly Communication Working Group’s holistic, project-based approach to work looks strong. Participants appreciate that the projects have produced tangible results within a prescribed timeframe, and interest from volunteers has remained steady from year one to year two. Learning from what we have achieved so far, we will continue to employ methods appropriate to the tasks at hand. The SCWG has turned Cornell University’s decentralized structure to its advantage, building connections across units and staff, and continuing to make real improvements to the scholarly communication support provided by the Cornell University Library.
