Join the MidContinental Region for the Mayden Lecture on eScience and eResearch

You are invited to join the faculty and staff of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library for the Priscilla M. Mayden Lecture on Wednesday, February 22 at 1:00 pm (Mountain Time) via the program link for viewing from a distance.  This year’s Mayden lecturer is Bart Ragon, Associate Director for Library Technology Services and Development.  Mr. Ragon’s lecture focuses on eScience and the Evolution of Library Services.  Not just for librarians, eScience / eResearch potentially impacts faculty, staff and student access to the data, tools and resources needed to collaborate, share and move science forward.

Mr. Ragon’s topic description:  “Science is changing and changing fast. Concepts like the data life cycle, data curation, translational science, high performance computing, and data sharing are having an impact on how science is conducted.  At the same time, libraries are adjusting services to meet the needs of highly networked and technically savvy patron groups.  eScience is a term that describes the dynamic re-shaping of collaboration and workflows in science and creating unique and important opportunities for librarianship.  This presentation explores potential roles for librarians in eScience, how new collaborations might form, and the role of the libraries in the data life cycle.”

There is no registration or fee to attend.  The program is being broadcast live and archived for on-demand viewing.  The program link will be available on the Mayden Lecture page for viewing from a distance:

  • The keynote lecture by Bart Ragon will run from 1 pm – 2pm MT
