Who is the audience and what are their information needs?
Librarians that are on the front lines, from subject librarians to scholarly communications and data librarians, this project will help with lowering the barriers that exist currently with the services that libraries offer to their communities. Librarians will be able to offer a simpler solution to making research, teaching and learning material available to broader audiences, while providing greater impact for the work done by students, faculty, researchers and educators. Meanwhile, authors are searching for easier approaches to making their works more discoverable while getting credit for their work. This project reduces the steps involved, and overall, the time it takes for authors to reach their communities.
