Research Collections and Support

Libraries are increasingly leveraging the raw materials of scholarship and knowledge formation by emphasizing the creation and curation of institutional research assets and outputs, including digitized special collections, research data, and researcher profiles. Our work informs current thinking about research collections and the emerging services that libraries are offering to support contemporary modes of scholarship. We are encouraging the development of new ways for libraries to build and provide these types of collections and deliver distinctive services. Our efforts are focused in the following three areas:

Expert Finder Systems International Forum 2021
virtual

Expert finder systems are part of a larger ecosystem of research information management, comprising a variety of use cases, systems, practices, workflows, and stakeholders. This broad array of activities mirrors the complexity and decentralization so characteristic of U.S. higher education, but still reflects commonality in the core practice of aggregating, curating, and using metadata about institutional research activities. Bryant discusses the rapidly changing RIM landscape in the US, the focus of a current project at OCLC Research.
