Research Information Management System
Capture the most comprehensive picture of Penn State’s research output in a single system, and publish the clean metadata via an easy-to-use interface for other developers to build upon.
Large research universities face a challenge when trying to capture and characterize all of the research that they produce. The information about new publications, accomplishments, and grants is often difficult to capture, and is often spread among disparate systems. Penn State University Libraries has been a leader in this space, and West Arete took a leading role in designing and developing the system that’s at the core of their Research Information Management System.
