Data Management: What is the library's role?

Monday, June 25, 2012
8:00 am to 10:00 am

US/Pacific (-7)

The panel will examine the variety of roles that libraries have taken in developing data management services and programs, the effectiveness of collaborative teams inside and outside of the library as initiatives are developed, and outreach efforts to bring the tools to the researchers. Speakers will provide examples of how the work has been deployed and discuss the roles that metadata librarians, libraries, and other collaborative departments have played in implementation.
