The OCLC Research Library Partnership Rep, Rank & Role meeting was held in San Francisco, California on 3-4 June 2015. It focused on the library's contribution to university ranking and researcher reputation. A distinguished group of speakers provided a mix of perspectives.

Increased attention is being paid to managing information about the research process, driven by reputation needs, assessment needs, and reporting needs. As the research process and its outputs are increasingly compared and ranked, how does the library advance university goals? How can the library improve the reputation of its institution and researchers? What new capacities and partnerships are required?
