To continue to enhance collaborative New England Region libraries’ support of e-science initiatives for their research institutions, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region is hosting the University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium. This day-long event will serve as an educational and collaborative opportunity for science and health sciences librarians to discuss e-science resources, in addition to future roles that libraries and librarians might take on to support their institutions. The 2017 Symposium theme “Libraries in Data Science: Addressing Gaps and Bridges” will focus on collaborations and opportunities for librarians becoming involved in data science at their institutions. Attendees will hear a keynote from Kristi Holmes, Director Galter Health Sciences Library, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. Her keynote will focus on her library’s success involved in Northwestern University’s NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award. We hope this session will inspire and motive attendees to "think outside" the library and identify potential bridges for data services. Participants will be able to attend 2 planned sessions featuring collaborations libraries are currently involved in: Data Repositories Interactive Workshop, Andrew Creamer and Hope Lappen, Brown University; Education & Training Interactive Workshop, Sophie Hou, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research and Nancy Hoebelheinrich, Knowledge Motifs; Education & Training Presentation, Shea Swauger, University of Colorado – Denver; Institutional Models Presentation, Christine Malinowski and Phoebe Ayers, MIT. In the afternoon, there will be a moderated panel discussing the ways librarians and libraries can work with institutional partners (either on/off campus) to enhance data science. The panel will be moderated by Sally Gore, Research Evaluation Analyst, University of Massachusetts Center for Clinical and Translational Science. Participants on the panel include: Daina Bouquin, Head Librarian, John G. Wolbach Library, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics; Audrey Mickle, Data Librarian, Marine Biological Laboratory Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Library; Yvette N. Woell, Manager, Argonne Research Library, Argonne National Laboratory.
