New content editors to join the e-Science Portal Editorial Board
Just as the New England Journal of Medicine reaches a much broader audience than solely the New England medical community, the e-Science Portal for New England Librarians is not limited to New England Librarians! Funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine New England Region and originated by our e-Science outreach group at the Lamar Soutter Library, University of Massachusetts Medical School, the intended audience for the Portal is librarians, library students, information professionals, and individuals interested in:
- Library roles in e-Science
- Fundamentals of domain sciences
- Emerging trends in supporting networked scientific research
As we approach the third anniversary of the e-Science Portal, I’m pleased to announce that we’re expanding the Portal’s Editorial Board to include librarians beyond the New England region. The following new Content Editors for the e-Science portal bring a wealth of expertise and work experience in data librarianship to the portal project:
Data Management: Daina Bouquin, Data and Metadata Services at Weill Cornell Medical College.
Data Literacy: co-Editors Jake Carlson, Associate Professor of Library Science and Data Services Specialist, Purdue University, and Amanda Whitmire, Assistant Professor and Data Management Specialist at Oregon State University.
Scholarly Communications: Margaret Henderson, Director of Research Data Services at Virginia Commonwealth University
Trends & Technologies: Stacy Konkiel, Science Data Management Librarian, University of Indiana- Bloomington.
My UMMS colleague, Andrew Creamer, is Editor for Professional Development. I will be managing the e-Science Community Blog and will be Content Editor for the Portal’s Science Resources section.
The Portal’s Editorial Board Co-Chairs are Jen Ferguson, Assistant Head, Research & Instruction, Science and Data Services at Northeastern University; and Katie Houk,
Research & Instruction Librarian, Liaison to Biomedical & Research Sciences, at the Hirsh Health Sciences Library, Tufts University
In addition to managing content in their delegated Content Areas, the Portal’s Content Editors and other guest contributors will be writing blog posts here on the e-Science Community Blog. Stay tuned to the e-Science Community blog by following NERescience on Twitter for latest updates. And be sure to keep
visiting the e-Science Portal!
