Description

Publications and presentations provide a tangible means of making the work of a researcher public, helping to support the reputation management and demonstrable impact of a university. But how can we aggregate the works of all the campus researchers to accurately frame and highlight the work of individuals in the context of the institution?

Like many US and global institutions, the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities has a Research Information Management (RIM) system that uses various means to pull together research outputs by university-affiliated researchers. Experts@Minnesota, co-sponsored by University Libraries and the Office of the Vice President for Research, has always provided a public portal to display the work of individual researchers. Experts@Minnesota continues to grow in scope and purpose, as it now provides the most comprehensive source of research outputs by University of Minnesota researchers available, an enterprise-wide “data warehouse” of research information for the campus. Join us to learn more about how Experts@Minnesota is helping others on campus save time and improve accuracy in faculty activity reporting, academic program review, current awareness and more.

Presenters from University of Minnesota-Twin Cities

  • Jan Fransen, Service Lead for Research and Discovery Systems, University Libraries
  • Caitlin Bakker, Biomedical/Research Services Liaison, University Libraries

This webinar will be of interest to librarians, institutional reporting and data warehouse professionals, and academic administrators who eager to more accurately aggregate the scholarly output of their institutions. It is also highly relevant to librarians and scholars who want to learn more about how they can help their user communities communicate the work they do to people both inside and outside the institution. This webinar will reflect the drivers, strategy and implementation plan of a US research institution; future Research Library Partner webinars will complement this narrative, providing a picture of the global RIM/CRIS landscape.
