M311 Leveraging Open Researcher and Contributer ID (ORCID) to Build Partnerships and Improve Research Evaluation
Monday, October 21, 2019 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Venue: Hilton San Francisco Union Square Lobby Level
Room: Golden Gate 8
Date: October 21, 2019 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM PST
In this session we'll describe how the University of Rochester Libraries leveraged institutional interest in rankings, reputation management, and research evaluation to launch a successful Open Researcher and Contributer ID (ORCID) outreach project and integrate ORCID data into faculty annual reporting systems. We'll describe how we identified user gaps and needs, and how we made our initial pitch to campus leadership. We’ll also discuss our approach to gathering stakeholder support, our iterative project design process, and our methods for leveraging targeted assessment to improve user experience—on both the faculty side and the research administration side. We'll also discuss the opportunities and challenges of working with ORCID data, and the methods we developed to enrich those data and provide better insight into research activities. By the time the conference is held, we will be in the third year of this project, and will be able to offer additional insight on how to effectively scale-up ORCID adoption and discuss how we are using ORCID data to support even more research support initiatives.
