Data Curation and Special Libraries: Education, Trends, and Developments

While you're finalizing your DC schedule please don't forget about the Computer Science Roundtable (and complimentary lunch), Tuesday, June 16th, 11:30am-1pm. Co-hosted by PAM and Sci-Tech. The complimentary lunch comes as a result of our wonderful co-sponsors ACM and IEEE.

Data curation panel presentations and discussion with:
>>> Richard Huffine, National Library Coordinator, US Geological Survey
>>> Jane Greenberg, Associate Professor and Director, SILS Metadata Research Center, School of Information and Library Science, University of North Carolina
>>> P. Bryan Heidorn, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Library and Information Science, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Open forum and discussion regarding CS being incorporated into SciTech
Note: IEEE and ACM plan to have representatives available to answer questions during the open forum.

Do not miss the chance to talk to experts in the field of data curation.
Some of the questions that they will be addressing:
What is data curation? What are the current trends in the field?
What can people do to train their organizations and self-educate?
What are the community standards?
What resources are needed (e.g. funding, staff expertise and technological infrastructure)?
What policies and processes need to be in place?
What are some of the challenges (e.g. technological change, sustainability)?

If you have any questions please contact me!
