Ithaka S+R announces new research program

Ithaka S+R Announces New Program: Research Support Services for 

Ithaka S+R is pleased to announce a new program, Research Support 
Services for Scholars, that will comprise a series of 
discipline-specific research projects aimed to provide critically 
needed research about the evolving behavior and needs of scholars 
to the information support service providers who work with them. 
Based on this research, Ithaka S+R will make recommendations 
regarding the future of support services for scholars and how 
information service providers-such as libraries, computing 
support centers, scholarly societies, and publishers-can support 
their needs.

Ithaka S+R begins this international research program with two 
projects: a research project in chemistry, with support from JISC 
and an emphasis on the needs of UK chemists, and a research 
project in history, with support from the National Endowment of 
the Humanities and an emphasis on US historians.
