The presentation summarises the new roles in the area of research information management that research libraries worldwide are gradually adopting. A brief description of the current CRIS landscape worldwide and in Latin America is provided, together with 'snapshots' taken from the euroCRIS Directory of Research Information Systems (DRIS) showing how distributed open source CRIS systems like DSpace-CRIS and VIVO are across the world. An update on a recent workline is finally delivered, namely the test harvesting and aggregation of CRIS metadata feeds by OpenAIRE.
