The Library’s R&D component pursues cutting-edge work in areas such as open archives, recommendation systems and visualization, information infrastructure, information interoperability, and long-term persistence of the scholarly record.
Agile at the Library
The Research Library has adopted Agile to sustain its ability to deliver innovative and responsive services, in alignment with our mission and vision. Though it originated as a framework for advancement of software development activities, we use it for that and more. Agile helps us to adapt to changing requirements, embody a learning organization, improve project outcomes, tap the distributed insight of our team, and be a better place to work. We believe in the potential of Agile to also advance a model of more collaborative and open science.
