RDAP 2019 Summit Advocate Level Sponsor Ex Libris


Thank you to our advocate level sponsor, Ex Libris, for making the 2019 RDAP Summit possible. Get to know our sponsor with a message from Ex Libris for the RDAP community.

Ex Libris is excited to sponsor RDAP 2019 for a meeting of the minds around research data management. Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, is deeply committed to education and research, with a mission to empower institutions to create, manage and share knowledge.  We recognize that research is the lifeblood of higher education organizations and are working hard to create a new approach to managing research data.

Our newest product offering, Ex Libris Esploro, encompasses research data and output management, researcher profiles, and publication management, for the benefit of academic staff and graduate researchers. This next generation research repository marries the natural overlap of institutional interests and a desire for greater harmonization between disparate faculties and staff, which the advance of technology can help make possible.

Researchers across the disciplines are creating content which is scattered across systems. Esploro brings all of these research assets together, wherever they are, in a unified system to make them more discoverable, reusable, and accessible. 

Ex Libris Esploro leverages the cloud-based Ex Libris Alma library services platform, which serves thousands of higher education academic institutions around the world. By utilizing their current experience and scholarly training with data management, libraries are well positioned to drive the transition to a more holistic approach to research services management, by scaling up support for research activities, and increasing collaboration with the Research Office and researchers themselves. For the library, one of the key benefits of this transition is the ability to strengthen the library’s position at the heart of academic research.

Esploro increases the impact of academic research by maximizing its visibility, efficiency, and compliance with regulations and policies and to help institutions better correlate research output and funding. Its research portal allows anyone to find domain experts, collaborators, and research assets. Esploro also increases the impact of academic research by maximizing its visibility, efficiency, and compliance with regulations and policies and to help institutions better correlate research output and funding.

Seamlessly integrated with existing research workflows, this new paradigm of research data management enables institutions to capture research objects and enrich their metadata, unify and automate research data workflows, track publications, monitor compliance with government and funder requirements, and measure research impact through relevant key performance indicators and the analysis of cross-institutional benchmarks.

Ex Libris Esploro unifies workflows and bridges communication between multiple research stakeholders, including the library, the research office, and researchers themselves. We encourage all who are involved in research data management to talk to your constituent library, and see how Ex Libris Esploro, powered by the Ex Libris Alma Platform, can drive results for your university’s research.
