Library research support in Queensland : a survey

By Joanna Richardson, Therese Nolan-Brown, Pat Loria and Stephanie J. Bradbury


University libraries worldwide are reconceptualising\ud the ways in which they support the research agenda\ud in their respective institutions. This paper is based\ud on a survey completed by member libraries of the\ud Queensland University Libraries Office of Cooperation\ud (QUL OC), the findings of which may be informative\ud for other university libraries. After briefly examining\ud major emerging trends in research support, the\ud paper discusses the results of the survey specifically\ud focussing on support for researchers and the research\ud agenda in their institutions. All responding libraries offer\ud a high level of research support, however, eResearch\ud support, in general, and research data management\ud support, in particular, have the highest variance among\ud the libraries, and signal possible areas for growth. Areas\ud for follow-up, benchmarking and development are\ud suggested
