New From Ithaka S+R: Research Support Services for Scholars

From an Ithaka S+R Announcement:

Ithaka S+R is pleased to announce a new program, Research Support Services for Scholars, that will comprise a series of discipline-specific research projects aimed to provide critically needed research about the evolving behavior and needs of scholars to the information support service providers who work with them. Based on this research, Ithaka S+R will make recommendations regarding the future of support services for scholars and how information service providers—such as libraries, computing support centers, scholarly societies, and publishers—can support their needs.

Ithaka S+R begins this international research program with two projects: a research project in chemistry, with support from JISC and an emphasis on the needs of UK chemists, and a research project in history, with support from the National Endowment of the Humanities and an emphasis on US historians.
