Description

Purpose: This poster focuses on the methods, tools and outcomes involved in creating two targeted research networks to support large, long-running research programs in the Woods Hole scientific community.

Participants: These efforts are managed by librarians from the Marine Biological Laboratory/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (MBLWHOI) Library in collaboration with administrators and researchers from two programs: The Whitman Center for Research and Discovery at the Marine Biological Laboratory and the National Ocean Sciences Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Facility (NOSAMS) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Description: In 2008, the MBLWHOI Library launched Connected Village (http://bibapp.mbl.edu), a research networking and discovery service for the Woods Hole Science Community1. The community has begun to recognize the Library as experts in promoting up-to-date information about researchers and research activities in Woods Hole. This year, NOSAMS and The Whitman Center have upcoming 10-year reviews from their respective funding agencies and governing boards. The ability to provide analytics regarding publication output, and demonstrate networking and outreach efforts is critical to the success of each review. This poster describes the planning, technical implementation, data gathering, deliverables, ongoing support and future directions of the Whitman (http://bibapp.mbl.edu/groups/51-MBL_Whitman_Center) and NOSAMS (http://nosams.mblwhoilibrary.org) research network tools.

Results/Outcome: Whitman Center – 611 researcher profiles created, 2064 published works harvested. NOSAMS – 1030 research profiles created, 1899 published works harvested. Administrators now have the ability to quantify and visualize the research output and impact of their programs. The researchers, who are from institutions all over the globe, now have the ability to discover potential collaborators in their field and get a much better sense of the collective scientific trends and contributions of their affiliated program. The Library is working with each program to develop workflows to systematically harvest new publications and maintain contact with their researchers on a continuous basis. Ongoing development includes refining our process for automated deposits of full-text and supporting data for publications into our Institutional Repository, the Woods Hole Open Access Server.

1 Connected Village runs on the open source software Bibapp (http://www.bibapp.org), developed by the University of Wisconsin and the University of Illinois.
