Notes from Breakout Session at CurateCAMP SE 2012

Researcher Profiling and Networking system

  • Simplectic Elements (similar to BibApp)
  • publisher provided versions of these apps are locked to that publisher
  • citation management
  • SHERPA ROMEO integration for rights checks
  • uses SWORD for self-archiving in repository


  • researcher social network
  • find an expert

Vireo ETD management system (developed at Texas Digital Library)

  • SWORD deposit support
  • GTech is moving to this for ETD workflow

Learning System (Sakai OAE, Blackboard)

  • student self-deposit
  • deposit of courses
  • source of context metadata

Other institutional agents tend to approach these same researcher systems in parallel to the libraries. Coordinating an approach is a challenge.
