    Abstract:
    Scholarly Identity (SI) encompasses scholars’ efforts to promote their reputation and impact (Brigham 2016) using digital tools and social networking sites (SNS) (e.g., ORCID). The need to cultivate an academic SNS presence is pressing, particularly for individuals who are in tenure-track positions, working towards promotion, etc. Managing SI is complex, and disciplinary standards differ for selecting SNS and establishing impact measurements. This panel provides diverse perspectives from academic librarians and researchers to address: a) How should/could academic librarians assist users who wish to build their SI? b) What services are currently offered? c) What opportunities, as well as concerns, surround SI work? The library and information science (LIS) literature has shed some light on academic libraries’ SI assistance (Ward et al. 2015). Reed et al. (2016) assert that academic libraries can build support services to help users craft and manage their SI. Academic librarians also use SNS to promote their own work (Brigham, 2016).
