RUresearch
RUresearch is the research data component of RUcore, the Rutgers
University Community Repository. RUresearch provides:
– Consulting on Data Management Plans and data best practices
– Permanently archiving data in the RUresearch data portal
– Work on larger and more complex data needs in grant-funded projects
The RUresearch Data Team
• Cross-departmental team of programmers and developers, metadata
experts, and librarians with disciplinary expertise
• Write and manage grants and serve as peer reviewers and consultants for
granting agencies, including the National Science Foundation
• Collaborate with faculty to make data available and increase faculty
research impact
RUresearch benefits
• Permanent preservation using industry best practices.
• Flexible metadata that can adapt to disciplinary standards and
special project needs, ensuring maximum discoverability of relevant
research.
• A permanent URL that can be used to cite data, indexing in Google
and Google Scholar, and links to publications based on the data, all
of which can increase visibility and citation of Rutgers research.
• Policies can include embargo and restriction of files that contain
sensitive data.
• Architecture that preserves and relates all components of the
research project throughout the data life cycle, from grant
proposals and descriptions of the data collection process (e.g. lab
notes, survey instruments), to software code and related
publications and presentations.
RUresearch: Grant Support
The Libraries can also partner with faculty on grant-funded projects to:
• Create custom portals to data for a project
• Create custom descriptive metadata schemes to provide access to the
unique aspects of a project's data
• Create tools for interactive data analysis and collaboration
The Libraries partnered with the Graduate School of Education to produce the
Video Mosaic Collaborative.
• Contact us at [email protected] or visit
rucore.libraries.rutgers.edu/research to initiate a data consultation.

KUALI-OLE
Rutgers Libraries ILS migration path is KUALI-OLE
Benefits of KUALI-OLE
• Improve services and expand access to resources for our
user community
• Provide opportunity to break down silos of information
and integrate our ILS and local repository into one
catalog
• Better ability to customize the software to meet our
needs
• Realize economies of scale by providing the opportunity
to shift the considerable expense of maintaining
individual ILSs to one statewide system
• Integrate with the state academic libraries
through VALID
VALID Current Status
• Install and test potential open-source discovery
interfaces for VALE community review and selection
• Review cataloging, borrowing, and collection
maintenance policies to enable seamless,
transparent lending and ensure we have a robust
physical collection
• Prepare our individual ILS databases
for implementation of a discovery
interface and migration to KUALI-OLE
