OCLC Research to Host TAI CHI Webinar on BibApp, 14 October 2010 at 2 p.m. EDT (UTC 18:00)

BibApp is an open source software that matches researchers on your campus with their publication data and mines that data to see collaborations and to find experts in research areas.

BibApp helps you:

  • find experts and current collaborations happening on your campus
  • promote the research of a department, school, or research group
  • increase the visibility of campus research
  • easily reuse publication data

With BibApp, it's easy to see what publications can be placed on the Web for greater access and impact. BibApp can push those publications directly into an institutional or other repository.

In this webinar, Sarah L. Shreeves, IDEALS and Scholarly Commons Coordinator from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will demonstrate how BibApp works, the challenges of work in this area, and next steps for the BibApp development team.

Webinar participation is free and open to all but advanced registration is required. Register here* to attend this free webinar via WebEx on 14 October at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (UTC 18:00).

This is the seventh webinar in the OCLC Research Technical Advances for Innovation in Cultural Heritage Institutions (TAI CHI) Webinar Series developed to highlight specific innovative applications, often locally developed, that libraries, museums and archives may find effective in their own environments, as well as to teach technical staff new technologies and skills. Recordings of these webinars are made available on the OCLC Research Web site and in iTunes.
