Torsten Reimer, the University of Chicago’s new head librarian, is looking to make data more accessible. This is something we can get behind. This interesting topic came to us from the University of Chicago’s in their news article, “UChicago’s new librarian wants to make data and research easier to share.”

Reimer began his tenure as University Librarian and dean of the University Library in April 2022 and champions a philosophy of a library as not only a service provider, but a research partner that offers its own expertise and intellectual agenda.

Institutions of higher education exist to support the information needs of those in their community. The best library collections don’t do much good if people who may be interested in the content don’t find it. That’s why it’s so important to provide good discovery tools for your collection. 

Making data findable is something we know a little about. Whatever you are searching for, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
