Presentation Title: New Roles for Librarians in Data Management
Presenters: Elaine Martin, Director of the University of Massachusetts Medical School's Lamar Soutter Library
Description: Science and health sciences librarians throughout New England, under the leadership of the RML at the University of Massachusetts, have attempted to develop a strategic approach to defining e-science librarianship. This presentation will discuss the multi-faceted model and how it affects academic librarians and the science and health sciences institutions they serve. Working in partnership, network member libraries are poised to participate in identifying new roles for librarians in research data management and creating a reinvention and rejuvenation of science and health sciences librarianship.
