OCLC Research and LIBER to launch collaborative information management study

The Association of European Research Libraries LIBER and OCLC Research announce a collaborative research study.

The research will explore the adoption and integration of persistent identifiers in European research information management infrastructures. 

Research institutions in Europe are engaged in research information management practices to aggregate, curate and utilise information about the research conducted at their institutions. These efforts are rapidly scaling nationally and transnationally, as advancing technologies and standards offer new opportunities for interoperability and discoverability.

This research will examine research information management practices in three European national contexts — Finland, Germany and the Netherlands with close attention to the adoption and integration of PIDs and their role in supporting disambiguation and interoperability.

The research will explore how libraries are promoting and engaging with broader research support initiatives on campus and nationally. It will provide university and research library leaders with useful insights on emerging practices and challenges in research management at institutional, group, national and transnational scales.
