BibApp: Find and Promote Experts on Campus
Wednesday, March 17, 2010
Do you know what current research your faculty are engaging in? What collaborations are happening across campus? Is your library aware of what publications the faculty are publishing in? This session will present BibApp (http://www.bibapp.org/), an open-source software application developed by UW–Madison and UIUC, that creates a campus expert gateway through a mashup of publication histories and directory information. College and university libraries can use BibApp to better understand publication patterns of faculty and easily identify material for an institutional repository. We will also discuss opportunities for integration of BibApp and similar applications like Cornell's VIVO into the campus infrastructure.
