  1. 1. New Roles / New Rules Information Professionals in Research Data Management Sally Gore, MS, MS LIS Informationist and Embedded Librarian Lamar Soutter Library University of Massachusetts Medical School HELLO MY NAME IS Sally
  2. 2. TODAY In this course you will explore the current relationships between libraries and their stakeholders seeking institutional support managing their research data. Data-intensive science and research are providing opportunities for new roles to emerge for information professionals. This course explores these roles and services, and uses the case study method to prepare participants from all academic backgrounds for roles in scientific research data management. This course aims to help prepare information professionals for engaging with scientists and for developing data management plans for their stakeholders' research projects. The course examines the data practices of researchers in scientific fields such as biomedicine and engineering to illustrate how researchers produce data, and how other researchers re-use these data for purposes of inquiry. We will explore the information tools used for research data management planning, research, data, and graduate student lifecycles, and we will explore a variety of strategies information professionals are using to provide data consultancy services to their institutions' researchers.
  3. 3. TODAY  What is the library’s role in RDM?  What is an embedded librarian?  What is a data librarian?  What is an eScience librarian?  Who is a data scientist? (I really have no idea.)
  4. 4. TODAY  What do I do?  How do I do it?

  6. 6. … the classic roles of libraries: • developing and preserving collections • developing access schema • developing services to meet information needs provide an important base from which to develop roles in eScience. The Data Deluge: Can Libraries Cope with e-Scien Marcum & George, editors
  7. 7. … the classic roles of libraries: • developing and preserving collections • of what? • developing access schema • what’s metadata? • developing services to meet information needs  Build networks – how?  “Middle Man” – aren’t we cutting them out?  Data LITERACY – are we data literate to begin with?
  8. 8. What do you think?  Professionals need an array of other competencies.  How much do the knowledge and skills requirements vary among roles? Let’s discuss!

  12. 12. It is not Apple* that is causing smoking to decline at the incredible rate that it has over the last 20 or 30 years. It is a broad network of people - some of them working for government agencies, some of them just by word of mouth, some of them philanthropic organizations - that are kind of spreading the word and getting people to give up this dangerous habit. ~ Steven Johnson “Who Needs a Boss When You Have Your Co-Workers?” Megan Gambino Merto/Portrait by Nina Jacket design by Alex Subin *Read “technology and data”.

  • The readings prior to your visit center on discussing the needed skill sets for librarians to engage in eScience/data management/embedded roles. If there is a specific blog post/reading on the embedded informationist that you would like students to have read before class or that you could recommend to us, please email me and I'll add it to the syllabus and will send it to students.
  • Add to this that the way we use information and data, in general, is providing a whole host of opportunities for new roles.USE = generate, create, utilize, manipulate, comodify, access, engage, take in, synthesize, understand…
