To maximize the value of the research conducted by its academic faculty, the library at Brandeis University took a fresh look at its scholarly communication approach and supporting infrastructure. It is now focusing on improved research information management through a new research repository, making research output and data, and the researchers themselves, easier to discover to others around the world. To be effective, the library worked closely with the research office and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive needs assessment and rollout plan.
