Learn to use various types of data to make strategic acquisition decisions. We will show sample data and give participants the opportunity to discuss acquisition options based on the data and budgets, and how information like this would be useful in their own institutions. Participants will learn how data can drive high-quality decisions and be a powerful vehicle for change

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. Learn how 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.
We also hope to see you at these info-packed sessions.
