The development of e-Research is changing the ways in which researchers locate, analyse, simulate, visualize, manage, retain, share, preserve and re-purpose data, whether gathered or generated in the course of individual or collaborative research. Do library staff understand enough about these changes to advise and assist researchers? How can library support and services be re-engineered to interface seamlessly with researchers’ changing working practice? How can libraries assist the development of support for the use of distributed networks and access, management and preservation of data generated by e-research activity in their institutions?
The CURL/SCONUL Task Force has organised a workshop to develop knowledge and skills in relation to this rapidly evolving area. This will provide an opportunity for librarians and information professionals to hear about developments in e-research and the developing infrastructure of support from expert practitioners. It will include opportunities for discussion about the emerging information-related roles associated with e-research.
This workshop is intended for information professionals.
This event is provisionally scheduled to start at 11:30 Thursday 14 June 2007 and close at 13:15 on Friday 15 June 2007.
