Dean of the Library
Montana State University
This lightning talk will give an overview of the newly formed and cutting-edge Research Alliance partnership at Montana State University (MSU). The Research Alliance is a consortium of units across campus that includes the Vice President for Research and Economic Development’s Office of Research Development, the Center for Faculty Excellence, the MSU Library, and Research Cyberinfrastructure working together to support and increase the excellence of the university’s research enterprise and to connect researchers with services that support research and creative practice throughout the research and teaching lifecycles. The Alliance will be housed in the MSU Library in summer 2023. Preparation work includes establishing a name, website, mission, vision, memorandum of understanding, assessment measures, and logistics of the new space.
