Our new University Librarian. Swoon.

“But for Gibbons the real challenge wasn’t the technology but convincing faculty to participate. Aided by an Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grant, she studied faculty research practices and identified faculty members most likely to contribute their research. She also identified services the library could provide to make it easier for them to contribute, like digitization and metadata enhancement. Based on Gibbons’s findings, the university built two new pages for its DSpace implementation. The Researcher page is a showcase for a faculty member’s DSpace content, while Research Tools is used by faculty members to launch and edit their Researcher pages and to search DSpace and other content.”
