Supporting (Big) Data Research

ERL_Webcast_2016_Feb23_Thumbnail_Web

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT
As scholars use new digital tools and resources to expand their scope of research and teaching, libraries are evolving to support them. While some of these tools and resources reside within the infrastructure of the library, others sit outside of it. This is a trend that cascades across all academic disciplines, from the humanities to the sciences, with often varying needs from disparate researchers. These different needs have led libraries to develop a wide range of service models to support curricular and research needs at their institutions. Learn about these tools, resources, and services and how they can further your interactions with researchers and help you support curricular innovation. Engage in discussions with colleagues who are helping their libraries reimagine services and evolve to support for their communities. Presented by: SAGE, ER&L, and Library Journal

Case Studies for Open Science

ERL_Webcast_2016_Feb9_Thumbnail_Web

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT
The Open Science initiative aims to make research and data accessible to and reusable by the broadest possible audience. It encompasses such practices as open publication, open peer review, and open access; and, encourages the “open notebook” approach, in which the process of scientific research is openly shared, often in advance of a project’s completion. Current activities and trends outside of libraries will be described and highlighted, and connected to the roles librarians/libraries can play in helping to make these processes more readily available and adopted. Specific examples of how librarians/libraries are helping to fuel the transition to a more open exchange of scientific information will be discussed. Presented by: SAGE, ER&L, and Library Journal
