OCLC Research to Host Managing Research Data—from Goals to Reality Webinar 11 AM-12 PM ET on 14 May 2013

 

Exclusively for OCLC Research Library Partners

Follow or tweet this webinar with #orlp.

All OCLC Research Library Partners are invited to join this dialog between Sally Rumsey, Digital Research Librarian at the Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford, and Wendy Kozlowski, Science Data and Metadata Librarian at Cornell University, about how they are managing research data—the raw output of research investigations, not the resulting reports. Sally and Wendy will both will 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.

OCLC Research Library Partners in attendance who are also managing research data are invited to chime in on how they are addressing the issues Sally and Wendy raise, and those who are not are encouraged to ask questions. OCLC Research Program Officer Karen Smith-Yoshimura will provide an overview of OCLC Research activities in various aspects of dataset curation and will facilitate the discussion.

OCLC Research Library Partners are invited to register* to join us for 60 minutes of presentation and discussion in this free webinar.
