On the surface, libraries and RIM systems seem like a natural match: Much of the content in RIM systems has to do with publications, libraries’ bread and butter. And librarians see themselves as connectors, whether it’s connecting researchers with information they need or bringing together various campus groups. So how different are the skills needed to use the metadata in a RIM system to promote the institution and help it improve? We’ll begin with observations drawn from experience with RIM systems and their stakeholders. With that background, three librarians from universities with different goals and expectations for their RIM systems will address how they and their colleagues are (and are not) engaged as stakeholders.
