I don't know if there is still space available (limited to 40) but on
March 24 a full-day workshop "Data Curation: Understanding & Dealing
with Research Data" will be held in Washington, DC at the Hilton
Washington. It will taught by D. Scott Brandt, Associate Dean, Research
Libraries and Jake Carlson, Data Research Scientist, Purdue U.
Libraries. This is a free special event (post-26th annual Computers in
Libraries Conference). Check with for more
information. I registered in January...

Subject: Librarians and Data

It's been observed and discussed on this list and other forums, the
concern that the role for librarians in eScience and the issue of data
management is rarely, if ever, discussed. (Last week's mention of the
"data deluge" article in the "Chronicle" comes to mind.)

Well, here's one chance to make yourself heard! A recent special issue
of "Science" is devoted to the topic of data and to accompany the issue,
AAAS has provided a number of supplemental materials on their website,
encouraging discussion on the topic. An example can be found here - If you
believe there is a role for librarians, if you're currently working in
this area, or if you want to see what it is that researchers themselves
want, need, think about this, take advantage of these tools. It's an
easy way to increase our visibility.
