Data Management Events for NE Librarians

Tuesday, August 18, 2015 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

In the MORNING, tour a world-class computational center in Holyoke, MA. The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) serves the growing research computing needs of five of the most research-intensive universities in Massachusetts: BU, Harvard, MIT, Northeaster, and the University of Massachusetts. The computers in the MGHPCC run millions of virtual experiments per month, supporting thousands of researchers in Massachusetts and around the world.

In the AFTERNOON, attend the first Research Data Management Roundtable discussion at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. This is an informal gathering of librarians actively engaging in data services (e.g. planning data services, serving on library data service advisory group, consulting on dmps, data curation, teaching rdm, data curation.) and the first in a series of discussions focusing on practical details and learning from our colleagues about research data management. The discussion topics for this session are our organizational structures, both within the library and across campus.

Later Roundtable events will reach out to librarians just beginning to work in research data management.

Further information on these events is available at the libguide August 2015 eScience Events in MA - Tour & Roundtable,
