Academic Library Manifesto

Support for the Research Process: An Academic Library Manifesto (PDF) was just released by the RLG Partnership Research Information Management Roadmap Working Group. You don’t need to nail it to your library’s door, but you might want to think about how many of these things you currently do, how many you could do, and what you could stop doing (or streamline) so that you can better support your institution’s research mission.

Ricky Erway, Senior Program Officer at OCLC Research, worked with staff from the OCLC Research Library Partnership on projects ranging from managing born digital archives to research data curation. Ricky left OCLC in 2015.

  1. Two thumbs up!

    My first reaction was: Golly, you mean everyone hasn’t agreed all along that seeking opportunities for research and scholarship, that is, the business of academe, is primary?

    But I quickly set that aside, wondering if someone shouldn’t probably tip off the academic publishing industry too.
