Big Data in the Library: How One Institution is Meeting the Data Needs of Today's Researchers

Class Details

Academic research libraries are in a key position to provide researchers with data services that strategically place libraries as partners with researchers, to the benefit of both interests. Many of these libraries are recognizing the need to go beyond their collections and become more embedded within the research culture of their university in order to provide a more well-rounded set of data services to their community of users.

This webinar will address how “big data” is changing the role of the library and how many academic research libraries are meeting the data needs of researchers through the creation of new services, spaces, and through the formation of strategic collaborations with other institutional partners. The session will focus on how the University of Cincinnati Libraries are keeping pace with other academic research institutions in this arena. This webinar will include the novel way that members of the University of Cincinnati Health Sciences Library partnered with otolaryngology researchers in an NLM Administrative Supplement for Informationist Services for data sharing.

The session will be presented by Tiffany Grant, PhD, Research Informationist and Interim, Assistant Director for Research and Informatics at the University of Cincinnati Health Sciences Library.

This webinar will be recorded and made available with captioning on the NNLM YouTube page. If you require live captioning services, please e-mail derek-d-johnson@uiowa.edu ahead of the webinar date
