Data Science In Libraries, Matthew Burton Apr 2018

Data Science In Libraries, Matthew Burton

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Mathew Burton, PhD, is Assistant Professor at the School of Computing and Information, University of Pittsburgh. His presentation was about the Data Science in Libraries project, which explores the challenges associated with implementing data science within diverse library environments. They see data science skills as a way to improve internal data collection and use as well as an extension to research data management services. When they began they were especially interested in the skills gap and training opportunities (both formal and informal) that exist for librarians and ischool students, as well as the the management gap (which they see as ...

Bu’S Study Group: Partners In Learning, Tom Hohenstein Apr 2016

Bu’S Study Group: Partners In Learning, Tom Hohenstein

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Objective: Building awareness of new library services on any campus can be difficult, especially when these services are deemed “non-traditional.” To help us overcome this challenge, the Boston University Libraries’ partnered with the Mozilla Science Lab to launch a new initiative called “Study Group” on campus. This poster describes Mozilla’s community building philosophy, the initial results of this partnership, and the technologies we have used.

Methods: The Mozilla Science Lab launched its Study Group initiative during the spring of 2015 to help researchers practice open science through community-led, technology-driven workshops. Group members lead each workshop in an informal, approachable ...

Data Repositories: The Answer That Actually Came With A Question, Lisa Johnston Apr 2016

Data Repositories: The Answer That Actually Came With A Question, Lisa Johnston

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Data repositories: the answer that actually came with a question. Funders, journal publishers, and disciplinary societies recognize the benefits of long-term access to valuable data that could validate results, increase scholarly democracy, or possibly lead to future discoveries. With this in mind, a majority of research now being done in academia is subject to data sharing requirements that the underlying data be publicly accessible, citable, and persevered. As many subject-based data repositories help make this happen, particularly for computing-intensive disciplines with shared infrastructure, such as high-energy physics or real-time climate monitoring, who will manage the "long-tail" of smaller or multi-disciplinary ...


Informationist: Informationist Breakout Session, Leah Honor Apr 2016

Informationist: Informationist Breakout Session, Leah Honor

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

In this session Leah will discuss her experiences working on an NIH Supplement for Informationist Services grant, what was accomplished, and what she learned along the way. Within the psychiatric neuroimaging research community, data and resource sharing have become accepted as standard, but issues related to attribution and citing data in novel research are still hindering meaningful reuse. This project aimed to illustrate a system of data identification that would not only allow for proper citation of whole datasets, but maintain the chain of attribution in derived and remixed datasets, allowing for a more complete picture of research impact and ...

Towards Linked Data For Oceanographic Science: The R2r Eventlogger Project, Controlled Vocabularies, And Ontologies At The Mblwhoi Library, Elizabeth Coburn, Andrew R. Maffei, Cynthia L. Chandler, Lisa Raymond Apr 2013

Towards Linked Data For Oceanographic Science: The R2r Eventlogger Project, Controlled Vocabularies, And Ontologies At The Mblwhoi Library, Elizabeth Coburn, Andrew R. Maffei, Cynthia L. Chandler, Lisa Raymond

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Objective: Research vessels coordinated by the United States University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (US-UNOLS) collect data which are considered important oceanographic science research products. The NSF-funded Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) project aims to improve access to these data and diminish barriers to their use. One aspect of the R2R project has been to develop a shipboard scientific event logging system, Eventlogger, which incorporates best practice guidelines, controlled vocabularies, a cruise metadata schema, and a scientific event log. Eventlogger facilitates the eventual ingestion of datasets into oceanographic data repositories for subsequent integration and synthesis by investigators. The careful use of controlled ...
