Need to develop tools of interest to researchers Research assessment process could be driver The broader the knowledge of library staff – the more effective the advocacy Departmental interest in local repositories can contribute to raising awareness on campus two streams – – develop tools and infrastructure that will support the vision of eScience – Work collaboratively on advocacy and education  27 27
