The Weizmann Institute of Science
Library system analytics can be applied to a wide range of use cases and the integration of a research information management system (RIMS) expands those options. From metadata quality checking, to customized publication list creation, to monitoring read and publish article publishing charge discount opportunities, analytics from the Weizmann Institute’s RIMS is helping the library work smarter and respond proactively to researchers’ ever-changing needs. Breaking out of the integrated analytics system’s standard boxes (aka tables) provides solutions in unexpected formats, supporting closer collaboration with faculty and students in research-intensive institutions. The Weizmann Institution of Science Library transforms analytics results and narratives into faculty-facing communication integrating context and metadata, supporting our scientists in complying with their research grant open access requirements while showcasing the portal’s features and services. This session will provide an overview of the experience thus far, outline the methodology, and highlight initial results.
