The integration of research information sources at university level
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
At the University of Bergen, a new system for documenting current research (CRIS) in administration and strategic planning is under development. There are several motivation factors behind the new system development, one major factor being the present revision of university budgeting strategies by our national authorities. The new system will integrate several needs of information and will have users both at different levels at the university and on national level. The system has been developed with a view to giving extensive support to researchers as main data providers. Our presentation will explain how our integrated model works, and the major components of the system. In order to demonstrate some uses of the database, results from on-going registration activities will be presented. Introducing a new university-wide documentation system presupposes the existence of a series of success factors. We believe that one of the most important ones is a mechanism for providing extensive information to and staying in close contact with the various data entry and end-user groups.
