Dani Guzman, Ex Libris

Academic libraries play a key role in supporting a university’s research, and their involvement can amplify the work of researchers significantly. University College London (UCL) is a fitting example. The UCL Library Services team is driving open-access publishing across the institution in ways that are raising the visibility of research output.

We spoke with Paul Ayris, Pro-Vice-Provost (UCL Library Services), for an inside view. (You can listen to the full audio of the interview below.)

“We have identified a distinct role for our libraries in the research process,” says Ayris. “For instance, we’ve built a very rich digital experience for researchers, in which they can interact with us and complete much of their workflow electronically.”
