cambridgeauthors.pngI have had a chance to see more of the Science@Cambridge ‘portal’ and to hear from Cambridge colleagues how they plan to evolve it.
As I noted, I particularly like the way in which access to the literature is surrounded by feed-based contextual services. I wondered about a view of materials produced within Cambridge and this is indeed on their agenda. On the medical pages (perhaps a medical portal is a ‘mortal’?) you can see how they are identifying and pulling out publications by Cambridge authors. Again, it is nice that you can subscribe to this; you can place it where you want to consume it.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
