Academic libraries are looking for ways to grow their involvement in research activities, scale-up their support to researchers and research offices, and increase the impact of research outputs.

What can libraries do to move forward collectively to meet these research support needs? This session will examine the challenges, and the potential role that libraries can play in driving a transition, by leveraging their expertise in data curation, resource management, and content dissemination. We will feature the perspective of an academic library and a system provider. We will look at a possible solution via Esploro – the Ex Libris research services platform, currently being developed in collaboration with five leading universities.

Presented by:

Charles Eckman, Dean and University Librarian, University of Miami

Eddie Neuwirth, Ex Libris, a ProQuest Company, Director of Product Management – Research Services
