Presentation Slides: “CRISs (Current Research Information Systems) Under Scrutiny: Some Recent Trends”
The slides linked to below were presented at the Autumn 2019 euroCRIS Strategic Membership Meeting (WWU Münster, Germany, Nov 18-20, 2019) by Annettee Dortmund (OCLC).
In a report recently published by the University of California Library, serious “concerns regarding the use of Research Information Management Systems (RIMS)” are raised that deserve broader discussion. Are commercial Research Information Management Systems evil per se? Under what conditions can they be used in a responsible way? And what is the context for this (sudden) distrust? Using the report as a starting point, the presentation highlights a number of topics that the euroCRIS community is well placed to discuss and provide guidance on, to whomever it may concern.
