Research institutions are under tremendous pressure to become more efficient in how they manage research information, whether in the lab or in the library. They want smarter ways to help faculty manage and share their research data, and track their research output. They want more options when it comes to procuring scholarly resources and understanding scholarly impact.  The workshop offers a series of conversations between academic institutions and the providers of some of the new software solutions addressing institutional and researcher “pain points” in the scholarly information management space.
