Presented at the Knowledge Maps and Information Retrieval (KMIR) 2014 Workshop. Co-located with ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL) 2014, 8th - 12th September 2014, London.


In this study, a Knowledge Map (KM) was created based on the Research Lifecycle at the University of Central Florida to provide campus-wide services and resources to researchers. The KM aims to meet the needs of researchers and delivers guided searching and assistance in all aspects of research, including literature review, citation management, research data management, grant management, research work publication and dissemination. It elaborates the research processes and their associated services as presented in the Research Lifecycle, and links these points to various campus resources including those provided by the University Libraries, the Office of Research and Commercialization, the Institute for Simulation and Training and the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning. It gives unified support to the researchers during their entire research lifecycle and it will keep evolving and developing.
