Research is the lifeblood of academic institutions. Yet, too often, research information management suffers from disjointed, manual workflows and isolated systems, generating incomplete and inconsistent data.
Ex Libris Esploro paves the way to greater impact of academic research by maximizing visibility, efficiency, and compliance of research activities. The Esploro cloud-based solution helps institutions showcase their research and measure its influence by systematically capturing, managing, and disseminating research output and data, leveraging library expertise and technology, and seamlessly integrating with existing library and research workflows.
Esploro creates a unified system of records. It widens the scope to all research output & data through automated capture and direct deposits. Metadata curation and enrichment make research output easily discoverable through academic channels and institutional portals.
Esploro unifies and automates research data workflows, replacing siloed, manually driven processes. For the library, the research office, and scholars, Esploro facilitates tasks such as managing research output & data, enhancing and applying metadata, depositing materials, and updating scholarly profiles.
Esploro helps libraries play a key role in academic research. It enables library staff to leverage their skills and technology in support of research processes and promotes librarians’ collaboration with the research office and researchers.
