BLC and Digital Science Workshop: "Addressing the Emerging Needs of the Research Ecosystem"

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

The Boston Library Consortium and Digital Science invite you to attend a workshop focused on the management, dissemination, and collaboration around research data in the university.  Today’s research ecosystem is increasingly complex and includes players from many different departments and groups within the academy: research and sponsored program staff, the CIO and IT staff, library deans/directors and their scholarly communications and research data management librarians, university marketing and communications staff and, of course, the researchers themselves. 

Meeting the diverse requirements of these varied groups in efficient and cost-effective ways requires that quality data are able to flow in and out of university information systems, often populating such diverse technologies as grants management systems, researcher profiles, institutional repositories, and enterprise data warehouses.  Non-traditional measures of research impact such as Altmetrics and the increasingly prevalent funder mandates create new challenges for universities as they look to ensure a robust research information management environment.

On Tuesday, November 25th, the workshop will be held at UMass Medeical School in Worcester. Lunch is included.
