Title: Open Science initiatives at Université Paris-Saclay
Abstract: The Université Paris-Saclay was created in 2020 as a leading scientific cluster. It has identified Open Science as a priority. As a comprehensive university, Paris-Saclay deploys its research in 275 laboratories, with nearly 10,000 researchers. Within the university, the Department of Libraries, Information and Open Science (DiBISO) is responsible for deploying a range of services in this area. In a very dynamic national (Second National Plan for Open Science) and international context, DiBISO is working with the entire university to provide services to the research community. One of the main challenges is to develop a service offer with scientific and technical information professionals within the university and associated institutions. The issues of coordination and collective organization are thus at the heart of the problem of open science services.
