This paper examines the developing partnership between the University of Leicester Library and the Research Support Office (RSO). It discusses the drivers and barriers to partnership, and the outcomes including the creation of a new role of Bibliometrician. We have discovered that joint work on promotion of open access, integrated research management systems and bibliometrics enhances research support and strengthens the Library and its visibility to researchers.
