Presentation Type

Panel Discussion

Program Description

Many institutional repositories (IRs) have assumed responsibility for capturing information about their university’s scholarly outputs. Publications, presentations, curriculum resources, research data, and multimedia materials are ingested as part of the institution’s research profile. Although great progress has been made to establish repositories as core parts of the research environment on many university campuses, IRs are often not utilized in the research development and grant proposal processes. Collaborating on research dissemination plans, assisting in data management, maintaining researcher profiles, and assisting in developing biosketches are all potential partnership opportunities for repository and research development staff. Yet, these groups usually do not come together to capitalize upon these points of intersection.

This presentation will explore ways that repositories can support their university’s research and funding development efforts. Beginning with a review of existing federal funding processes and research information management systems, such as MyNCBI and SciENcv, repository staff will begin to see overlap in the work they are engaged in and grant submission and reporting procedures. Based on this foundation, barriers to collaboration will be identified. Lack of awareness, systems barriers, and staffing limitations will be considered. Finally, participants will discuss methods for building productive and functional relationships with research development groups.
