Researcher support in academic libraries is a current interest of mine. I would like to hear about different models used in Universities anywhere in the world.
In particular I am interested in how a physical space in a library can integrate into one single hub or point of access all the research support services, including a virtual research environment, that researchers may need. By researchers I mean the whole range from Masters by Research and PhD students to Post-Doctoral and Research Fellows as well as the established academics.
This range of services is not limited to library services, or to the services provided by the institution for its researchers. I am sure there are already many universities where such ideas have developed and are successful.
