  • 3. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 1The Spaniard universities.They are mainly old, traditional institutions; very different from American universities.Financed bypublic funds.Massive universities.Not specialized.They don´t have enoughbusiness links.
  • 4. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 2University of Oviedo. Regional Scope.Decentralisation: 7 campus in 3 different towns.25.000 students. 2.000 teachers.Principality of Asturias 1 M. Inhabitants. Surface: 10,604 km²Decentralisation: 14 library centres with a central coordination.
  • 5. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 3The University of Oviedo at Scopus.
  • 6. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 4The University Library has changed over time, but not its aims.• From paper to electronic information. Rules and systems to communicate information.• Librarians have always worked with data. Now data simply come from othersources.• Librarians have always worked producing standarised information. Now we justhave to implement new standards.• Librarians have always worked organizing information for our community. Now wesimply arrange the information on a global network.
  • 7. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 5The ways of transmitting knowledge have changed worldwide.Siku QuanshuComplete Library of the Four Treasuries
  • 8. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 6What are the librarians doing?Libraries need people with expertise and learning ability.Updating and permanently training ourselves to work with new databases, standards,tools 2.0, semantic web, scientific SEO…Team work. Cooperation with other services. Participation online.Helping students, faculty staff and researchers.Helping the Research Office.Promoting and spreading scientific papers.Promoting our researchers.We need to work about these aims on the web, in order to obtain global knowledgeabout our university.
  • 9. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 7Scientific globalization.Which indicators can help researchers with theirnational evaluations?Librarians help to know all this.Who are the best researchers and where are theypublishing? Impact factor, SJR, H-index.Many people find the knowledge throughinternational databases: Scopus, ScienceDirect, WOS.From national and local publications on paperto the need of publishing in internationalelectronic journals with global spread.What are the best institutions and where are theypublishing? Impact factor, SJR, H-index. Rankings.Important questions
  • 10. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 8Scientific globalisation and scientific identity.Nowadays, our researchers are havingproblems to look for their identity on thenet: “Who am I?”Our researchers need help with theirprofiles: “What are my codes?”The researchers identity on databases ismade through profiles and IDs.Some important librarian roles are:Elaborating analysis and reports about the identification of authors and institutions,solving problems, proposing solutions and making signing rules for the academic staff.From national identity to global identity.
  • 11. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 9Online visibility of our identity 1.Example: an author profile on Scopus.
  • 12. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 10Online visibility of our identity 2.Example: an institution profile on Academic Search.
  • 13. Another important librarian task is to write institutional reports sothey can be consulted by departments, research groups andindependent researchers with their scientific production data.The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 11Researchers and scientific authors. Who are they?How is an author linked when their name isnot clear enough. Examples:That is why researches arent often able to find theirscientific papers and their profiles.How does a scientific authorsname appear on databases?Perhaps their name is not clearenough.Tian N.Zhou ZYSung SGDing YWang ZL
  • 14. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 12Identity means precision.We must identify and review author and institutions:• Precisely and periodically.• On a regular basis.Ding Y
  • 15. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 13Identity precision allows analysis improvement.Scival analysis tools and Scopus profiles : Scival Strata and Scival Spotlight aresometimes based on the researches or institutions profiles.Ex: Scival Spotlight.Rankings - Competencies.Institutions.Ex: Scival Strata.Comparative analysis.Researchers.
  • 16. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 14Identity, profiles and Shanghai Ranking.Essential scientific indicators.Highly cited researchers1) Creating Researcher IDs atThomson Reuters for our highlycited authors.2) Searching and attributing theirpublications on WOS.What we must do from the Library:
  • 17. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 15An important task: reviewing profiles.Why Scopus in the firstplace?It is the most widelyused and knowndatabase.We are performingsome sessions aboutdigital identity for theresearch staff.We are writing somerecommendationsabout signing andaffiliations.
  • 18. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 16Scientific production is important for identity.All the Spaniarduniversities must write, ona yearly basis, an officialreport about theirresearching activities. Tocarry it out, the input dataabout research papers isnecessary.As visibility online is a veryimportant matter, we havedecided to load all the dataon our InstitutionalRepository, an openstandard electronic onlinearchive.Reseach ReportThe LibrarySearch for DataInstitutionalRepositoryResearchersReviewingAddingInstitutionalRepository
  • 19. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 17An example: from Scopus to Repository.1. Collect publications with an "institutional affiliation" (University of Oviedo)on bibliographic databases. Not only on Scopus, but also on the ScienceWeb, Medline, IEEE, Wiley and Spaniard databases.2. Import Bulk Data of publications, including DOI.3. Store, review, delete any duplicate and standardise all kind of data: Titles ofjournals, authors, years, etc.4. Convert data into metadata for DSpace Repository.5. Uploade these data to Repository by an automatic process.6. Standardise names, titles of journals and other data.Process
  • 20. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 18Identifying with data. Semantic web.Metadata for Institutional Repository: Dublin Core Metadata; RDFAuthors metadata: It is essential that authors are perfectly identified.The role of libraries: Elaborating and creating metadata.Current trend:Open and linked data.Linking authors identifications on ScopusID to other identifications:ORCID; Researcher ID; VIAF.VIAFVirtual InternationalAuthorities File
  • 21. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 19The result of metadata 1.The role of libraries:Elaborating and creating metadata.Publications titles Authors‘ namesDates
  • 22. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 20The result of metadata 2.The role of libraries:Elaborating and creating metadata.Link to original papers by DOI
  • 23. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 21Identifying and linking scientific documents online.The importance of linking original published documents.Not all the articles will be available tobe read with their full content onlinefor free.The importance of DOI for unidentified documents.Precisely linked authors and documents.Authors codes.But, at least, authors and publications datawill be displayed online in an open andstandardized way.
  • 24. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 22The researching identity oriented to the results of search engines.Institutions also need an identity.It is necessary to have a personal identity for each researcher.It is necessary to spread andpromote it online.This identity requires being reviewed, standardized and linked.The institutional identity influences the authors identity, and viceversa.Authors and institutions and departments are linked online.Identity belongs to the team and to each member of that team
  • 25. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 23Open Access helps spread researcher identity.Open Access facilitates online visibilityOpen Access is currently used in a large amount of scientific journals.The Open Access changes the way offinancing the journals.http://www.elsevier.com/about/open-access/open-access-optionsInstitutions shall promote andfinance Open Access.The University library is constantly workingand informing about allthe issues related to Open Access.
  • 26. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 24Identity, profiles and ORCID 1.• ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to create andmaintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparentmethod of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.• ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, researchsectors, and national boundaries and in its cooperation with otheridentifier systems.• ORCID works with the research community to identify opportunities forintegrating ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as researchprofile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications, andpatent applications.Distinguishing your research activities fromthose of others with similar name
  • 27. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 25Identity, profiles and ORCID 2.• The University of Oviedo is an institutional member of ORCID+ Early Adopter.• We make the ORCID for our academic researchers by an institutional way.• Bulk loading data, for which it was necessary an API; our API for ORCIDis made by GrandIR.

The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 26Library works about identities.In project: Linking with curriculum vitae.Reviewing ScopusprofilesEarly adopter ORCID.Making ORCIDs for itsresearchersMaking and reviewingResearcher IDs(Thomson –Reuters)Linking IDs with ORCIDLinking with theInstitutional RepositoryLibrary
  • 29. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 27Spreading the research identity: blogs.Examples from the blog,the library and theresearch identity.Diffusion of authors,works and images.Detailed explanationsand incorporation ofaudiovisuals.Tags, links, descriptions.
  • 30. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 28Spreading the research identity: FacebookThe library keeps in touchwith other spreadingchannels. It is just anotherway of promotion, in additionto the official one.Facebook spreadsthe informationbetter than a blog.
  • 31. The university library as a support for the institutional research identity - 29Spreading the research identity: Twitter.Brief notes aboutthe researcher’sactivity in ouruniversity.Links to theresearchersworks online.This resource iscurrentlyspreading quickly
