Summary: Every institution creates and uses data for many reasons. Data needs to be collected, described, stored, organized, retrieved, and shared, all things that librarians can help with. But how do you get started when there are many types of data and a range of services that can be offered? Margaret Henderson will talk about how to leverage the skills librarians already have to work with data and suggest some areas of data and service to get you started.
