  • offer guidance, peer review, and feedback to individuals or groups on research, scholarship, and creative works;
  • help researchers to connect with experts and other parties as needed;
  • provide final approval for inclusion of materials in the library repository;
  • and coordinate resources, presentations, and workshops including participation in the annual promotion workshop.
