Two-Part Webinar: Labor and Capacity and Building Data Science Skills

Webinar

About this Two Part Webinar

Labor and Capacity for Research Data Management, Part One:

For any library serving a research community, research data management continues to be a significant area of interest and concern. Significant labor must be applied to the curation and preservation of such data and additional resources allocated to ensure on-going access. This program will consider the combined roles of archivists, data librarians and administrators in formulating and delivering suitable and effective services. What communities of practice exist? Which is preferred -- a general purpose data repository or one that is discipline specific? How varied is the form of such data? What practices and policies have proven effective? This session will update practitioners and administrators.

Building Data Science Skills: Strategic Support for the Work, Part Two:

This roundtable discussion will focus on the on-going need for information professionals to be well-versed in data science skills in order to successfully support the work of students, scholars and other professionals. While the community may be quite familiar with the research data lifecycle, it is likely that additional tools or support are needed for information professionals as they extract, wrangle, analyze and present data? From the perspective of administrators, where are the challenges in ensuring staff are sufficiently prepared and supported by their institution? How does such expertise bolster the position of the library? What is the best way for data science education to permeate the institution? What policies or practices have proven useful?

For Online Events

  • You will need a computer for the presentation and Q&A.
