Abstract

The development of portals in recent years has led to a wide spectrum of different portals being developed and tested for use in supporting education and research. Manyof these have originated in different parts of an institution, resulting in paralleland duplicate developments. Far from the one-stop shop, portal development can sometimes lead to a bookmarked list of websites turning into a bookmarked list of portals. The use of portal frameworks can allow disparate institutional interests to be brought together, not only simplifying the management of portal delivery, but also permitting connections to be made across the institution that might not have previously existed.

This presentation will address how a portal(s) can be managed within an institution to best support researchers, both in enabling support of the full research process (including administration), and supporting researchers who are also teachers. Parallels with repositories will also be examined.
