Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the development and practice of research support services in university libraries. It is very important for the university library to gradually integrate into the core business of the university, and to continuously enhance its value and competitiveness in face of new academic environments. By restructuring agency teams, reshaping service strategies, and rebuilding services and evaluation systems, Peking University Library took full advantage of bibliometrics, information resource analysis, competitive intelligence, etc., and established a framework of research support services to provide strong support for the development of Peking University. Taking Peking University Library as an example, this article introduces some cases: the trend analysis of research hotspots project, the analysis report on patent competitiveness, a series of reports on subject competitiveness, and reports on research frontiers. The article discusses the difficulties, experiences, and benefits of these cases.
