              A Day in the Life of a (Serious) Researcher: Envisioning the Future of the Research Library

              Posted in ARL Libraries, Reports and White Papers, Research Libraries, Scholarly Communication on March 9th, 2016

              Ithaka S+R has released A Day in the Life of a (Serious) Researcher: Envisioning the Future of the Research Library .

              Here's an excerpt:

              Beyond this, the library is not even the best starting point for envisioning the library. A better starting point is to develop an understanding about the lives and information practices of the scholars and students who depend on the library in all its shapes and forms. Therefore, in this Cornell project, we looked at what academic researchers do day-to-day and how they acquire, use, and share information in the course of their daily activities. From our interpretations of these data we imagined new models.

                    "ARL Libraries and Research: Correlates of Grant Funding"

                    Posted in ARL Libraries, Research Libraries on January 21st, 2016

                    Ryan P. Womack has self-archived "ARL Libraries and Research: Correlates of Grant Funding."

                    Here's an excerpt:

                    This study focuses on U.S. members of the ARL, the Association for Research Libraries. Research success is measured by the total grant funding received by the University, creating an ordered set of categories. Combining data from the NSF National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics, ARL Statistics, and IPEDS, the primary explanatory factors for research success are examined. Using linear regression, logistic regression, and the cumulative logit model, the best-fitting models generated by ARL data, NSF data, and the combined data set for both nominal and per capita funding are compared. These models produce the most relevant explanatory variables for research funding, which do not include library-related variables in most cases.
