Description

In this webinar, Sally Rumsey, Digital Research Librarian at the Bodleian Libraries in Oxford, and Wendy Kozlowski, Science Data and Metadata Librarian at Cornell, discuss how they are managing research data—the raw output of research investigations, not the resulting reports. Sally and Wendy both provide the context in which they are handling research data, including their goals, current activities and plans, with demonstrations of the systems they are developing.

In addition, OCLC Research Library Partners who are also managing research data chime in on how they are addressing the issues Sally and Wendy raise, and those who are not are encouraged to ask questions.

OCLC Program Officer Karen Smith Yoshimura facilitates the discussion adn also provides an overview of OCLC Research activities in various aspects of dataset curation.
