Have you heard about SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem) and wondered exactly what it is? Do you need to explain SHARE to stakeholders, both on and off campus?
The new SHARE Knowledge Base succinctly answers the most frequently asked questions about SHARE and will continue to be expanded as the initiative grows.
Sample Knowledge Base questions include:
- What is SHARE?
- What is SHARE building?
- What is SHARE doing about data?
- Does SHARE compete with CHORUS?
- Is the SHARE Notification Service’s focus limited to US-based research activity?
Search or browse the SHARE Knowledge Base. Use the information in your work and in your conversations with faculty, campus administrators, and other colleagues.
If you have questions that are not addressed by the Knowledge Base, please send them firstname.lastname@example.org.
SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem) is a higher education and research community initiative to ensure the preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs. SHARE will develop solutions that capitalize on the compelling interest shared by researchers, libraries, universities, funding agencies, and other key stakeholders to maximize research impact, today and in the future. SHARE aims to make the inventory of research assets more discoverable and more accessible, and to enable the research community to build upon these assets in creative and productive ways. The Association of Research Libraries (ARL), theAssociation of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) have partnered to develop SHARE with significant input from the three associations’ member institutions and their broader communities.
