Research and development tools are a substantial, but necessary, investment. Learn how to enhance their use.

If your company operates within an industry that requires extensive research, then chances are you’ve invested significantly in research tools.

Although these resources are critical to conducting in-depth research, the tools and how you showcase them can make it difficult for you and your employees to find critical information when you need it. This often leads to low user adoption and prevents the resources from being used to their full potential. 

If you want to maximize the usage of your research tools, there are small and easy changes that you can make at your organization. EBSCO Corporate Solutions has outlined ways in which you can enhance the use of your research and development resources, helping you and your employees find the information that you need, when you need it.

1. Expose your content to make it easier for users to find.

Have all content — such as internal content, licensed content, e-journals, magazines and web sources — in a central location to allow for easier access and higher adoption of resources.

2. Customize tools based on how you work.

Invest in a tool that allows you to map information based on departmental workflows, as well as gives you the option to customize topics and segmented results.

3. Give users immediate access to information.

Allow your employees to find the information they need when they need it with immediate access to full-text resources, and easy access to monitoring and alerts tools.

4. Invest in a tool that does it all.

Give your employees a superior research experience with a tool that allows for easy look-up, precision searching and discovery.
