Works in Progress Webinar: Case Studies of Research Information Management at US Institutions
In this webinar, RIM practitioners from three research-intensive North American institutions will talk about the different motivations that led to implementations of RIM systems on their campuses and how their libraries were involved.

Research Information Management (RIM, usually called CRIS systems outside North America) involves the aggregation, curation, and utilization of metadata about research outputs, including publications, datasets, grey literature, and more. In this webinar, RIM practitioners from three research-intensive North American institutions (two public and one private) will talk about the different motivations that led to implementations of RIM systems on their campuses and how their libraries were and are involved. Original primary drivers included activity reporting, transparency to the public, identifying potential collaborators, and funding discovery, but these goals also evolve over time. The presenters will provide a brief description of the goals, processes, and products used at each of their institutions, as well as how the library has worked collaboratively with other institutional stakeholders.
This webinar is slightly revised from a presentation at ACRL 2019.
This webinar will be of interest to library leaders and scholarly communications librarians. Given the enterprise nature of research information management, it will also be relevant to other institutional stakeholders including deans, research administrators, institutional researchers, and IT professionals. We encourage institutions to invite other campus stakeholders to watch the webinar together.
Works in Progress: An OCLC Research Occasional Webinar Series
These webinars are exclusively for OCLC Research Library Partners, but the recordings are publicly available to all.
Works in Progress: An OCLC Research Occasional Webinar Series to talk about work happening in OCLC Research – we'd like to present our work informally and get feedback from you, our Partners. We'd also like this to be a venue for Partner institutions. What are you working on that everyone should know about? What input would help you move forward? Let us know!
