A recurring theme across all of the work that takes place in Library Research Services is interoperability.
A key system we use across the team is Pure. We work closely with colleagues in the University Research Office (RIS) to use this system and to support researchers, particularly with publications and data related issues.
Both Pure and our Research Data Archive have relational functions for the exchange of information and for reporting and statistical purposes. Other sites, such as ORCiD and EThOS harvest information from Pure, and services like IRUS-UK and ResearchFish help monitor and report on usage of records held in the system.
New tools for interoperability and discoverability will develop over the next few years. Part of the work we do in Library Research Services is to monitor and horizon scan for ways to maximise the visibility of the research produced at Bath.
If there are new systems that you believe are key to the dissemination or promotion of our outputs, please do get in touch.
