Research Life Cycle

New Video: Research Lifecycle

The UCF Libraries released a new video to guide viewers through the Research Lifecycle (RLC) model. The RLC was created by the UCF Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Task Force in order to:

  • Help understand the research process
  • Show the location and types of services available for researchers
  • Highlight missing support areas in order to establish new services on campus

For more information about our Research Lifecycle, see the Office of Scholarly Communication.
