  • At the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus, the Library and the Centre for Scholarly Communication recently partnered with the Office of Research Services in order to collaboratively build a research portal for faculty. Research and Infrastructure Management Enterprise Services (rimes) was created as a seamless portal for researchers on campus to access resources, services, and tools for planning, conducting, communicating, sharing, and measuring their research. Traditionally, support for the scholarly lifecycle has been dispersed among various units on campus and has not taken into consideration changes in the scholarly communication landscape. For researchers to meet mandates for open access, data management, knowledge transfer, and research impact, collaborations among on-campus units are necessary for providing faculty support from a coordinated perspective. The main benefits of the Library, Centre for Scholarly Communication, and Office of Research Services partnership are improved knowledge creation and sharing. This poster presents the genesis, implementation, and outcomes of the project.
