Love British Books 2012 (and NECTAR)

Through October the Gallery Corridor at Avenue Campus is displaying selections from Love British Books 2012, an exhibition of contemporary British literature, book decoration and design co-curated by Paul Middleton and Carolyn Puzzovio.

The exhibition was first shown at the Museum of Art and Literature, Yerevan, Armenia in June to mark Yerevan’s selection as UNESCO’s City of the Book 2012 and the 500th anniversary of the first book printed in Armenia.

The book accompanying the exhibition is available to view on NECTAR, the university’s repository of research output – read on to learn about the benefits NECTAR can offer.

In addition to offering a permanent, public home for the book’s bibliographic information and full-text PDF, NECTAR automatically adds it to the list of publications on Paul and Carolyn‘s staff profiles on the University website:

– and makes the information available to other web services such as Google Scholar:

The record is also added to the School of the Arts’ yearly research report and published to assorted RSS feeds – a feed for each author, a school feed, a subject feed and so on. We use these to build the Latest Nectar Items list on the right, and in future posts I’ll take a look and how everyone can take advantage of RSS feeds. Items on NECTAR also benefit from a wealth of social network sharing and export options to propagate and integrate output, and NECTAR is being used to collect and organise data for the 2014 REF.

We’re always happy to help and advise researchers who’d like to add their work to NECTAR – for further information, please see our FAQs or contact the LLS Research Support team.
