Connecting FHCRC Shared Resources to the eagle-i National Directory of Cores

Tuesday 08/06/2013

The Arnold Library is pleased to announce Shared Resources’ participation in the eagle-i National Network of Research Resources.  Hosted by Harvard, eagle-i is a directory of core labs, built to help biomedical investigators search for and find resources needed for their science.  FHCRC Shared Resources’ labs, services, instruments, training and reagents are now discoverable to any researcher querying this network of cores.

Joining eagle-i provides Shared Resources another venue through which to promote services, and an opportunity to demonstrate compliance with funder requests that core lab resources be shared with   investigators outside our institution.  To maximize both speed and efficiency of content management, our information in the eagle-i system is sourced directly from the Shared Resources website.  Arnold Library staff obtained grant funding from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM PNR) to support developers who, in partnership with both library staff and the eagle-i team, designed and built a Drupal module which maps and transfers data between the systems.  As of June 2013, the new Drupal module is operational and pushing content across to the eagle-i network.  

Please contact the Arnold Library with any questions about eagle-i or the Shared Resources website.
