Developing the Scholarly Communication Ecosystem: A CMU Perspective

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Participants attending the CNI Executive Roundtable held in April 2017 produced a report capturing ways of rethinking and implementing strategies surrounding institutional repositories. During the past year, the University Libraries (UL) of Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) have begun to implement an ambitious vision for the future of research at CMU, which includes a commitment to curating the data, publications, software, and other products, tools, and workflows of the research process. To achieve this, the UL has been developing a resource-intensive scholarly communications infrastructure built and managed around an interconnected Current Research Information System (CRIS) and a new comprehensive institutional repository (IR) powered by the figshare platform. This presentation will address the development of the CRIS/IR centered scholarly communications infrastructure and the challenges that the UL has discovered in implementing an IR to serve as an "enterprise repository" for students, faculty, and administrators. It will also focus on the ways in which this new ecosystem has organizationally transformed the UL to become campus-wide champions of new forms of scholarly communications and dedicated stakeholders in the research life cycle at CMU.
