Academic libraries have been focussing their efforts for some time now on helping increase the visibility of the work of its researchers and its institutions.
Libraries are doing this through scholarly communication activities, including publishing; by helping improve the academic profile online through social media and academic social networks; through digitisation and multimedia support services; promoting correct research identification through ORCID for example, or by supporting institutions in the evaluation of research through strong information management activities coupled with repository work.
The range of services shown in this graphic have been extracted from one of Proud2Know’s benchmarking studies of over 100 academic libraries across the world from the US, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia. For more information, see LIBREVE.
