Many US research institutions are implementing research information management systems (RIMS), and OCLC Research has published several reports exploring this area of new library investment.
In this presentation, we will hear case study examples of RIMS implementations at three US research universities. The presenters will share about the project goals, drivers, products, and scope, as well as the significant and ongoing challenges of securing researcher and campus buy-in. Implementing a RIMS is unique to each institutional setting, and the presenters will share about the different use cases their RIMS is supporting and how their campus is benefiting from the system.
The presenters will also share about the role of the library in leading and supporting the effort, in conjunction with other campus stakeholders.
This webinar will be of interest to library leaders, RIMS practitioners, and institutional leaders interested in leveraging RIM systems at their institutions.
All affiliates of OCLC Research Library Partnership organizations are invited to participate.
