Day 5: Putting it All Together

Libraries Research Impact Challenge

The challenges for days 1-4 have been focused on making your scholarly research accessible and how those contributions are measured and reported. We’ve covered just some of the ways that you can address the different aspects of research impact, but we are shifting gears for the final challenge. 

Today, we want you to focus on taking what you've learned and putting it into practice. Think back to this week's challenge and consider how you might combine what you learned into telling a compelling story about the reach, significance, and impact of your scholarly or creative work.
