This paper presents an App prototype capturing Library Information Science in Taiwan (LIS-TW) for researchers’ information from unique author identifiers such as Scopus Author Identifiers, ORCID and Google Scholar Citations. By using Linked Open Data technologies, this App can push not only the latest information of researchers but the links of publications to the Android platform devices. The study demonstrates a practical approach to personalize the researching information needs without any delay.
