Surging ahead with theses collections: a collaborative case study

Jayshree Mamtora, Prashant Pandey

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


    With the introduction of the new Research Information System (RIS) infrastructure at Charles Darwin University (CDU), based on Elsevier PURE, the Library has taken the initiative to collaborate with the University’s Office of Research and Innovation (henceforth the Research Office) in making the University’s research collections more easily discoverable and hence more widely accessible through a series of different avenues. In late 2017, when the new system was rolled out, the Library decided to consolidate the IR (Institutional Repository) functionality with the research administration functionality of the management system, to better and more efficiently manage the research data and open access publications needs of the University. Previously, the Library was singularly responsible for providing public access to CDU research through its eSpace institutional repository (IR) while the Research Office focussed on its primary role of managing research administration. In collaboration with the Research Office, the Library has started work on migrating Higher Degree Research (HDR) theses from the repository into the RIS and streamlining the process around their management internally
