State-of-the-art reference management

The other major benefit of MIE for researchers is that it gives them the ability to save academic citations, which can then be imported to Microsoft Word in a pre-formatted bibliography. This cuts out the process of manually writing a bibliography, saving valuable research time and boosting productivity.

Compare your collection against usage trends

You’ll find the real-time content usage insights offered by MIE to be invaluable as part of your selection and collection management process. The powerful data insights offered on your dashboard will immediately show you which content is most popular, putting you in a strong position to make informed decisions on whether content or subscriptions should be renewed, cancelled, or taken on in a different format.

Find out where your members are publishing

Thanks to MIE’s advanced analytics, you can connect content usage with subsequent research publications by identifying the publications in which your members are publishing their research. You’ll even be able to see research impact analytics, data that shows you how well-read your researchers’ publications are. This gives you concrete evidence to prove the worth of your library within your institution - valuable data when library budgets are increasingly being stretched.
