Accelerating Research Funding with Ex Libris Pivot and Research Professional
Thu 17 Sep, 2020, 15:20–15:45, Zoom - 4
Conference or Developers' Day
Conference (20 minutes + 5 min Q/A)
Session Abstract
As the competition for securing research funding continues to grow globally, Researchers and research institutions must have tools and partners such as the library to efficiently identify potential opportunities and research collaborators.  In addition, the Covid-19 pandemic has expanded the burden on graduate students to find more of their own funding to be able to complete their research and courses of study.  So in September 2020, Ex Libris is launching Pivot-RP the most comprehensive global source of funding opportunities.  This session will highlight some of the latest features of Pivot-RP which provides a wealth of tools to automate and accelerate the discovery of funding opportunities.  Pivot-RP allows libraries to support the research efforts of students and faculty as well as providing the research office with efficient workflow tools to be able to  find and disseminate information about funding.
