The Research Information Network: genesis, strategy and role

Author:

Michael Jubb

Abstract

The Research Information Network (RIN) is a new organization that aims to serve the research community in the UK by leading and co-ordinating the provision of enhanced research information services. This paper sets out how the RIN came into being, how it is organized and funded, and the mission and role that have been given to it by its sponsors: the UK higher education funding councils, the research councils, the British Library, and the national libraries of Scotland and Wales. The essential task for the RIN is to work with the key stakeholders in the research and information communities to meet the challenges of building a more effective, sustainable, and continuingly developing information infrastructure that meets the needs of researchers. The paper outlines the RIN's key strategic aims, and how it intends to meet the challenges that have been set for it.
