Author(s):Han, Yingying; Lai, Tong; Zhou, Lihong
Subject(s):Open data
University libraries
Digital scholarship services (DSS)
PEST model
Abstract:This study aims to identify factors affecting Digital Scholarship Services (DSS) in Chinese university libraries in the context of global open data movement. Firstly, the study adopted an inductive literature analysis approach combined with PEST analysis. The analysis pointed to 14 factors that would influence the DSS under four categories: political factors, economic factors, edu- cational factors and technical factors. Secondly, an exploratory case study was adopted, at which 11 librarians at Shanghai Jiao-tong University Library were interviewed using semi-structured interview questions. Further conceptualisation pointed to 11 factors that will have an effect on the Chinese university libraries, among which 4 have been proposed as core factors. This poster is of interests to not only library and information academics, but also to librarians and open data professionals.
