We'll soon start a pilot database of faculty/department/researcher with refbase :
code :

This is a web base solution for managing bibliographic references. You can batch import/export in many formats your references and exposed them with OpenSearch and SRU or include them in Endnote or Zotero, etc.. Generating bibliographies for faculties or a specific researcher is easy as you can include results into web pages  with Atom XML or HTML. It uses COinS and unAPI.

We are facing the same difficulties as other mentioned for populating this database. The same apply with our institutional repository: researcher and teachers find it reluctant and time consuming even if we can batch import there works. On the other end, copyright matters don't apply to bibliographic references so we could "scavenge" big citation databases..

Hi guys,

Does your library maintain a database of faculty publications? How do you do it?

Some things I've come across in my (admittedly brief) research:
- RSS feeds from the major databases
- RefWorks citation lists

These options do not necessarily work for my university, made up of 24 colleges/institutions, 6,700+ FT faculty, and 270,000+ degree-seeking students.

Does anyone have a better solution? It need not be searchable: we are just interested in pulling a periodical report of articles written by our faculty/students without relying on them self-reporting days/weeks/months/years after the fact.
