NISO Webinar : Research Data Curation | Part 2 : Libraries and Big Data

18 septembre 2013

Publié le 20 août 2013, par Thérèse Hameau

Faculty in all disciplines are increasingly creating and/or incorporating big data into their research and institutions are creating repositories and other tools to manage it all. There are many challenges to effectively manage and curate this data—challenges that are both similar and different to managing document archives. Libraries can and are assuming a key role in making this information more useful, visible, and accessible, such as creating taxonomies, designing metadata schemes, and systematizing retrieval methods. Our panelists will talk about their experience with big data curation, best practices for research data management, and the tools used by libraries as they take on this evolving role.

Topics and speakers are :

  • Academic Libraries Get Ready : Big data is here and it needs a (caring) home – Lisa Johnston, Research Services Librarian, Co-Director of the University Digital Conservancy, University of Minnesota Libraries
  • The Library’s Role in Enabling Data Interaction for Researchers – Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Research Data Management, Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University
  • Building Communities and Services to Support Data-Intensive Research – Carly Strasser, Data Curation Project Manager, UC Curation Center (UC3), California Digital Library
