REACH NC launches new statewide Resource Finder

The new Resource Finder is powered by the eagle-i open-source tool from Harvard University and expands the ability of researchers to find facilities and resources that will aid them in their endeavors.

REACH NC is proud to announce the North Carolina statewide Resource Finder, powered by the eagle-i open-source tool from Harvard University. The REACH NC Resource Finder is the product of collaboration with the UNC System, the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) and NC TraCS, and expands the ability of researchers to find facilities and resources that will aid them in their endeavors.

REACH NC is a Web portal that enables users to search, browse and find thousands of experts and assets within North Carolina higher education and research institutions. REACH NC’s expert profiles can assist people in industry, community groups and university personnel in efforts to find information and potential collaborators for research and problem-solving.

REACH NC allows North Carolina to tap into its own vast pool of experts and resources. In keeping with this vision, REACH NC has implemented the statewide Resource Finder. Powered by Harvard’s eagle-i open-source tool (funded by Harvard Catalyst, The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center [grant number 1UL1 TR001102-01]), the REACH NC Resource Finder is a searchable, public tool for campus facilities, resources, and instrumentation in North Carolina.

The REACH NC Resource Finder was launched in April 2014 featuring resources from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. By June 2014, it will be extended to include resources from an additional 14 UNC system universities. Visit the Resource Finder tool to find what North Carolina has to offer.
