I was interested to see the combination of services presented on the Research and Enterprise pages of the London School of Economics.
- The LSE experts directory
- LSE Research Online (the institutional repository) Links to corporate relations, commercialization activites, and to podcasts, videos and other public outputs.
I was especially interested in the Motivating headline on the Experts database page: Be seen. Be heard. Be cited.
I expect we will see more of this type of convergence as universities look at more organized and integrated disclosure of their research and expertise capacities on the web. This is especially topical in an environment of growing ranking and assessment.
Library roles here are one of the issues which have come up in our Research Information Management strand of work.
