Organization profile

The University Library, a campuswide network of libraries serving programs of learning and research in many disciplines, is the largest public university research library in the United States. The Library is a worldwide leader in the dissemination of knowledge through our remarkable research collections, outstanding services, innovative technologies, and exceptional faculty and staff.

Fingerprint The Elsevier Fingerprint Engine mines the text of the experts' scholarly documents – publication abstracts, awards, project summaries, patents, and other sources – to create an index of weighted terms which defines the text, known as a Fingerprint. By aggregating and comparing Fingerprints, the Elsevier Fingerprint Engine enables users to look beyond metadata and expose valuable connections among people, research units, publications, and ideas.
