What research support services do researchers need?
The RIN and OCLC Research have completed a comparative study to investigate information-related support services for researchers in the UK and the US.
The project investigates researchers’ needs and desires in a small sample of UK and US universities and to identify the signiﬁcant patterns, intersections, gaps and issues from researchers’ points of view, whatever the source of such services.
The report is now available, providing librarians and information professionals, research support staff, university administrators, and research funders with a clear and detailed set of conclusions and recommendations about how they might develop their services to meet the needs and aspirations of researchers.
