  • 53 responses mostly from librarians indicating that working with the Research Office on CRIS developments and bibliometrics is just an additional part of their responsibilities that must fit in with their main duties.
  • About half of respondents (25) have a some kind of system for managing research most using a commercial system (16) or using in-house solutions (9). The other half do not currently have a CRIS or don’t know of any developments.
  • Only 34 people responded to question 6 with 10 aware of plans to purchase a commercial system in their institution. The majority didn’t know (15) or didn’t answer (19) which implies that the library is not always included in these decisions and much depends on the working relationship between the Research Office and the library and whether there is already an institutional repository in place.Just over half of people didn’t answer question 7, because it wasn’t applicable to their role, grade or area of responsibility. A quarter of institutions have a CRIS (25) that integrates primarilywith the institutional repository (20) and the web pages – staff profile pages (16) and departmental web pages (8)
  • Of the 24 people who support bibliometrics, 19 have sole responsibility for it within the library service. Only 2 people provided comments in response to the question about other departments providing support with 1 referring to a Bibliometrician who carried out this function.
  • Overwhelming interest in joining a InCites mailing list (91%). A mailing list would provide a forum for InCites users to share information about its use, enabling other institutions to evaluate whether the resource (or a similar tool) is right for their institution. The library can play a role in advising the Research Office to purchase InCites, rather than purchasing it with the library budget.
