Example story: As a researcher, I'd like to see / search on works <by, about, cited by, collected, taught> by University faculty <in an OPAC, profiles system>, to discover works of interest based on connection to people, and to understand people based on their relation to works.

Example story: As a researcher, I’d like to see a list of works from the most prolific authors in my field at my institution and at other institutions.

This use case is demonstrates pivoting on combined profile system and catalog data, perhaps even between systems. Need to be careful to distinguish demonstration of this use case from the faculty finder functionality of existing profile systems. Must understand how much catalog data adds (perhaps more in non-journal disciplines) and value of cross-institutional data.

Out of scope: n/a

Potential Demonstrations

A. A VIVO/CAP/Profiles search results in a faculty list. Pivot by hitting a "see all publications by these researchers" link. This generates an OPAC results page or a VIVO/CAP/Profiles results page with citations.

B1. In OPAC, search results with a <Cornell, Harvard, Stanford> author get a context panel with an excerpt from their VIVO/CAP/Profiles page. (Note this has potentially appealing, cross-institutional utility and demonstrability.) 

B2. In OPAC, search results highlight any search results that have a <Cornell, Harvard, Stanford> author

B3. A facet in the OPAC search results page lets user refine results to just <Cornell, Harvard, Stanford> authors (current?)

B4. A check box or tab in the OPAC allows patrons to search for only <Cornell, Harvard, Stanford>-authored works, effectively producing an institutional faculty-works portal.

C1. A search on "Stephen J. Gould" (a Harvard professor with archival materials at Stanford, requires data from EAD or limit to collection level MARC data) shows works by, about, owned by, cited by, used in his courses, or held in his archive.

D1. A faculty genealogy lets researchers show who advised whom, and what works were produced in a genealogical tree (maybe use math data http://genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/) (Simeon: if this is of interest, should it be a separate use case?)
