Research Currently in Progess

Phillips, R.(n.d.). Environmental Social Governance Data and the Rise of Corporate Sustainability Reporting. In Progress.

This article details the mandatory and voluntary disclosure of environmental, social, governance (ESG) data by companies and the standardization of such disclosure. We examine the efforts of standards organizations and business information providers shaping corporate sustainability reporting and review information providers' products for delivering ESG data.

Phillips, R.(n.d.). “A Benchmark of University Library Business Resources. An Analysis to Aid Database Purchases.. In Progress.

The purpose of this project is to examine university library database subscriptions for the purpose of collection development, resource purchasing, and ultimately to create a benchmarking tool by which university libraries can compare their own business database subscriptions. This project will entail scraping database listings from Springshare LibGuides, hosted on academic library websites, of the top fifty business schools. These business databases will be then sorted, assessed, benchmarked. My intent is to expand the initial fifty university libraries benchmark to include a larger set of LibGuides. A customizable data dashboard will be created to allow anyone to compare their university collections by certain criteria like FTE, business school rankings, et cetera.
