Lib4RI is constantly working on improving and extending the library's services for its users. To do so efficiently, a lot of our work is project based. Our project map gives an overview of the planned activities of the next few year while at the same time allowing for a certain flexibility depending on the day-to-day work.

Highlighted projects

  • The Lib4RI Open Access fund supports authors at Eawag, Empa, PSI and WSL who wish to publish in fully Open Access (OA) journals and who are required to pay an article processing charge (APC). In the framework of the National OA Fund project, the ETH board financially supports the Open Access fund for the years 2022 to 2024.

  • The goal of the implementation plan for Measure 3 of the ETH Domain Open Research Data Programme is to produce and disseminate online training modules for Research Data Management (RDM) and Open Research Data (ORD), specifically tailored to the researchers of the ETH Domain, using an existing and appropriate online platform. While researchers are the primary target group for these trainings, the material will also be available as OER (open educational resources), enabling research support staff to use it for further training purposes

  • Lib4RI has developed a search tool that brings together results from numerous sources in a clear and easily accessible way. It combines content discovery with publishing services by also providing information on Open Access and OA funding opportunities. This makes the tool the central starting point for information from Lib4RI and helps to further increase the OA share of publications.

  • The institutional repository DORA is based on the open source software framework Islandora. Currently DORA runs on Islandora legacy, but a new version of Islandora – Islandora 2 – is already available with a new architecture, better Drupal integration and more. The goal of this project is to update the software of the repository, including but not only, new functionalities and better performance.
