Developing Collaborative Connections - Faculty, Researchers, and Librarians

The health of an institution’s research program depends on how well the entire campus ecosystem manages the research process and scholarly output. Increased competition for funds and greater demand by funders for impact reporting makes it critical for research institutions to consolidate disparate internal data sources like repositories, finance data and faculty profiles. Research management systems make connecting faculty activity to other campus systems easy and simplify the reporting and showcasing processes. Within the university, the library is uniquely positioned to lead implementation of a campus-wide research management system because of the library’s neutral position and expertise in maintaining bibliographic information, disambiguating people and concepts and using metadata to discover relationships.

This panel will explore how different libraries have implemented a research management system on their campuses. Panelists will discuss how to capture research output beyond journal articles, how to get humanities researchers to buy into the system and how to effectively partner across the campus to support both faculty and administration.
