Sparking connections: creating new routes to research discoverability


Global research partnerships are integral to advancing knowledge and making it accessible to broad audiences and applications. DiscoverResearch is a new tool to highlight, celebrate and promote University of Toronto experts across all disciplines. The tool connects U of T’s research expertise with media, industry, and academic collaborators, while simultaneously helping faculty keep track of their work. With automatic harvesting of data from trusted sources, DiscoverResearch offers a comprehensive view of a researcher’s outputs and scholarly activities, and their impact beyond academia, and allows researchers to tell their own in their own words.

This session covers U of T’s journey to launching DiscoverResearch. We will present a case study on how the Faculty of Arts and Science – one of our largest divisions, with over 1,000 faculty and 40 academic units – has successfully engaged its faculty members. They achieved this using a tailored approach that addressed the specific concerns and expectations of each unit. We will also highlight the vital role played by our research administration officers throughout the process. This session will provide best practices for engaging users in new tools and key functional and technical considerations to launching a new institutional platform. We will share lessons learned, creative uses of resources, and how to lead cross-divisional, high-impact projects. You can view the tool here:
