Data Engagement: Strategies for Engaging with Data Communities

Contact: Deborah Charbonneau
Contact: - Midwest region
The research landscape is growing dramatically and information professionals are examining new roles, services, and types of collaborations to support data-intensive research. Given this, a major goal of this CE Course is to present promising strategies for engaging with various data communities. This course explores the potential roles and opportunities for health sciences librarians in data-intensive research environments. In particular, how librarians can become uniquely situated to support data issues throughout the research life cycle will be discussed. In addition, this course is flexible and can be offered several ways, including as an in-person/f2f workshop or utilizing a “flipped classroom” approach where participants will be provided with some online content/video in advance and a “homework” assignment prior to the in-person workshop where this information will then be synthesized and discussed. This timely skill-building workshop provides opportunities for participants to engage in meaningful conversations about the application of the highlighted “data engagement” strategies to their own workplace environments resulting in a data partnership action plan.
