Overview Edit

The Research Information Network (RIN) was a policy unit funded by the U.K. higher education funding councils, the seven research councils and the three national libraries. It sought to:

  • enhance and broaden understanding of how researchers in the U.K. create and use information resources and services of all kinds
  • support the development of effective policies and practices for researchers, institutions, funders, information professionals and everyone who is involved in the information landscape.

On December 31, 2011, the funding provided to RIN by its consortium of funders came to an end, and RIN ceased to exist in the form that it had taken since 2005.

On January 1, 2012, RIN was launched as a new venture, a community interest company that undertakes research and analysis, as well as facilitation and coordination, with the aim of improving accessibility, availability and understanding of research information resources and services; and promoting the development of effective policies and strategies for the benefit of researchers and all those interested in their findings.
