Research data literacy and the library

Presented by

About this talk

The era of e-science demands new skill sets and competencies of researchers to ensure their work is accessible, discoverable and reusable. Librarians are naturally positioned to assist in this education as part of their liaison and information literacy services. In this webinar gain a broad understanding of the open research data management ecosystem and initiatives underway. Our presenters will explore data information literacy needs and competencies identified for grad students and researchers, as well as a curriculum developed by the IMLS-funded Data Information Literacy research project. They will discuss how data labs can serve as a physical and social environment – and interdisciplinary platform – for supporting data literacy education. Learn more about how libraries are expanding the scope of information literacy to include open data and related tools, methods and skills. Be informed of projects and models to store, share and cite data, and provide credit for data sharing.
