Yesterday's online scholarly presence workshop (that I taught) leads me to think ResearchGate may be one of the best things to ever happen for institutional repositories. *IF* librarians can get avoid "shaming" researchers for using RG and instead create workflows that help researchers get things into RG and IRs efficiently. Anyone working on this?

How I know I've been away a long time from the library where I did my graduate assistantship: I just drew a complete and utter blank on the name of the somewhat obscure Civil War Union General on whom I helped a particular community patron do research a minimum of twice a week for about two years straight.
