Engaging Assessment to Show Value and Make Decisions: Making the Case for Your Library

Contact: Lisa Hinchliffe
Contact: 2173331323 - Midwest region
As libraries are increasingly asked to demonstrate their value and the contributions they make to their institutions, library staff need efficient and effective strategies for assessment. Best practice in assessment means embedding assessment into the library's practices on a continuous basis rather than treating it as a separate and additional task. The workshop will present an integrated and systematic approach to developing and assessing library activities that includes identifying impact outcomes and aligned activities, establishing criteria, collecting and analyzing data and evidence, and using the results for improvement and telling the story of the library's impact. Participants will have the opportunity to practice using the tools and techniques presented.

Perspectives in Research Data Management

Contact: Kevin Read and Alisa Surkis
Contact: 929-888-3964 - All region
Rapid changes in funder and publisher requirements are creating new opportunities for librarians to play a central role in research data management. This class will provide an introduction to the key topics underlying research data management and the current climate around data management and data sharing, as well as exploring ways in which libraries have become stakeholders in this area. Attendees will learn about the steps of the data lifecycle, the process and culture of different types of research, basic standards for data description and documentation, the key elements of a data management plan, and general methods for storage, archiving and sharing data. The second half of the course will prepare participants to provide services at their own institution through exercises, group discussion, and practical advice on how to get started. Participants will be led through an informationist case study to gain a deeper understanding of the role a librarian can play in research data management. Breakout groups will provide a forum for participants to discuss challenges and opportunities at their own institutions and to develop strategies for initiating data services.

Data Sharing and Reuse: Roles for Health Sciences Librarians

Contact: Lisa Federer
Contact: 301-594-6283 - Mid-Atlantic region
Funders and journals increasingly are requiring biomedical researchers to make their research data available, and meaningful use criteria also call for clinicians and hospitals to share data for public health purposes. Librarians’ expertise with information organization makes them invaluable collaborators for researchers who want to share their data or locate datasets for reuse and reanalysis. This course will provide librarians with tools and skills to help support data sharing and reuse. Participants will learn about policies regarding data sharing, how to assist researchers to prepare data for sharing, and how to locate and prepare datasets for researchers to reuse. The course will also introduce participants to free software to facilitate sharing and organization of data.
