Surfacing the Water Network

The University’s Water Network is virtual, a response to the need seen by the already established Water Council to provide new ways for researchers to connect, particularly during the pandemic. The Libraries collaborated — through its expertise and resources — was key to making it happen. It’s “a ‘gather around the water cooler’ sort of thing for people all around the system who are engaged in research around water,” says Jan Fransen, the Libraries Service Lead for Research Information Management Systems, who was a member of the working group who developed the Water Network.
