Here we go…

Hello everybody!

My name’s Ellen Collins and I work for the Research Information Network (RIN). Along with the University of Huddersfield, we’re running 25 Research Things.

The RIN has had a longstanding interest in how researchers use web 2.0 to share information. Some of this has rubbed off on me – since joining the organisation I’ve started using Twitter, and I even write the occasional blog.

However, I’m still very much in the paddling end of the web 2.0 swimming pool. So, in the interest of becoming more of a practice-what-you-preach kind of a gal, I’ve decided to join in with all the Huddersfield researchers taking part in this programme. Previously, this project has only ever been run for librarians, and I’m excited to see what’s different when we involve researchers.

I’m looking forward to experimenting with some of the newer tools and techniques, the ones I haven’t yet tried. I know that not everything will necessarily work for me but, since this project itself originated and was mostly written using web 2.0 tools, I’m aware that they can have powerful and unexpected uses.

So, bring on the next 9 weeks!
