How Can Academic Libraries Go Beyond e-Science: The Emergence of New Contribution-Recognition System

Min-Chun Ku

(Submission #39)


This poster discusses the problems that the e-Science community is facing and how they will drive the need for a new contribution-recognition system that reflects the accumulative, social and collaborative characteristics of scientific practices, and documents the contribution of various activities to scholarship. It analyzes how academic libraries can actively ground themselves in everyday research practice and shape the e-Science revolution by working with Web 2.0 and social networking concepts and technologies and offering new research data and information services to the e-Science community based on the new contribution-recognition system.
