Event Overview

E-Science Day, a day-long program organized by the University of California Davis and funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region, was held on Tuesday, December 6, 2011, at the Medical Education Building of the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, California. The event was a blended format- available both in-person and via web conference- that featured a keynote and panel presentation; lightning rounds, and afternoon break-out sessions. The aim of the event planners was to educate regional librarians in what is e-science, why librarians should care about it, and how they can begin supporting it at their own libraries and institutions.
