Associations Team Up for Research-Tracking Service

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) received a joint $1 million grant from IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, which will help ARL develop and launch the SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) notification service for tracking the releases of research results such as articles and data.

“At IMLS, we look for proposals with robust reach and deep, lasting impacts for the best ‘returns’ on our federal investment dollars. The SHARE initiative certainly meets those criteria,” says Susan H. Hildreth, IMLS’ director.

ARL, the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) partnered to create SHARE using member institutions’ and stakeholders’ input. Their goal is to guarantee the preservation of, access to, and reuse of research outputs by making outputs more discoverable and accessible. The SHARE Notification System will be SHARE’s first project, with a planned full release in fall 2015.
