DIG @ 2014 ALA Midwinter Coffee Gathering Report
Eleven of DIG members attended our informal coffee gathering at Ray’s Café & Tea House during 2014 ALA Midwinter Conference in Philadelphia. We exchanged some updates from the sessions we attended during the conference and some members talked about the data resources they recently reviewed. Upcoming ICPSR’s Summer Program on Data Services and IASSIST conference are also discussed. Members suggested that we need to think about some themes for future webinar topics so that we could invite appropriate speakers. Members also suggested that we could invite speakers to our Interest Group Meeting during ALA 2014 Annual Conference, and engage more members into discussion of research data services.
There will be a virtual meeting in February for all members to participate. Please feel free to comment on this post with any additional notes from the meeting or any suggestions for our future meeting discussion topics.
