The DuraSpace Community Webinar Series: Research Data in Repositories

Hot Topics: The DuraSpace Community Webinar Series
Series Six: Research Data in Repositories

Curated by David Minor, Research Data Curation Program, UC San Diego Library

Series six will highlight details on the implementation of a new curation program at the University of California San Diego Library. For more than two years, librarians and computing professionals worked with researchers from diverse disciplines to conduct a pilot program to pinpoint research data curation practices that could be used across campus. The series will present in-depth looks at the technologies, metadata services and decision making processes behind the program presented by the people who developed them. Researchers who participated in the program will also speak on their goals and experiences. There are 3 webinars in this series:

Research Data Curation at UC San Diego: An Overview, Tuesday, October 1, 1:00pmET

Register HERE

The opening webinar will present the background and an overview of the research data curation program and the curation services that were created and used.  The fundamental questions, assumptions and challenges that the program faced, and the decisions that were made based on them, will be presented.

Metadata and Repository Services for Research Data Curation, Tuesday, October 15, 1:00pmET

Register HERE

The second webinar will be an in-depth look at the two core curation services. First, a metadata librarian will present the wide variety of discussions that were held with researchers, focusing on commonalities and differences in needs and expectations, and the data model that resulted. Then, a development manager will address how the Library’s linked data asset management system was updated to express complex research data objects.

Researcher Perspectives of Data Curation, Thursday, October 31, 1:00pmET

Register HERE

The final webinar will present the researcher perspective: two world-class researchers will discuss their view of data curation, why it represents an important part of contemporary scholarship, and their experiences working with the UC San Diego pilot.

Space is limited so register soon.

An Orientation to Accessing to the Measures of Effective Teaching Longitudinal Database | ICPSR

Webinar offered by ICPSR: An Orientation to Accessing to the Measures of Effective Teaching Longitudinal Database

MET LDB is ready for analysis! Join us for the first in a series of four webinars discussing the rich and complex quantitative and video data held within the Measures of Effective Teaching Longitudinal Database at ICPSR, available now for secondary analysis. This first webinar will offer an overview of the groundbreaking MET Project, a summary of the data files available at ICPSR, and a description of ICPSR’s specialized data access systems.

Webinar: Stewarding Research Data with Fedora and Islandora | DuraSpace

DuraSpace Solutions Webinar: “Stewarding Research Data with Fedora and Islandora”

  • Tuesday, September 10, 2013
  • 11:00a.m. – 12:00p.m. Eastern

Mark Leggott, University Librarian, University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI), President of Discovery Garden Inc. and founder of the open source Islandora project.  Interest in curating, managing and stewarding research data is on the rise because now funders often require it, and researchers and the institutions that support them have found that data sharing leads to greater discovery and innovation.

Islandora is an open-source software framework built on Drupal, Fedora, and Solr. The growing international Islandora community is actively working on solutions for managing diverse research data in virtually any domain.

In one example at UPEI, Islandora tools are being built to sync data from systems like DropBox and Google Drive to Fedora, providing immediate preservation services for any arbitrary collection of data. This Physical Data Model is intended to provide a quick and seamless integration with Islandora where the researchers can subsequently enrich and optionally choose to share their data with others. In another example the Smithsonian is applying a set of Intellectual Data Models to steward research output from a variety of projects. In this case data is ingested into Islandora against a domain-specific data model that applies specific metadata forms, data transformations and data viewers to make the data more accessible immediately on ingest.

This webinar will highlight these and other approaches to managing and preserving research data.

Live Stream for the Data Information Literacy Symposium | Purdue

Live Stream for the Data Information Literacy Symposium (DLS) , September 23rd and 24th

For those who are not able to attend the Data Information Literacy (DIL) symposium, here is good news.

Much of the Data Information Literacy (DIL) symposium hosted by the Purdue University Libraries on Sept 23rd and 24th will be streamed live on the internet.

The DIL symposium will explore roles for practicing librarians in teaching competencies in data management and curation to graduate students.  With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, librarians from Purdue University, Cornell University, the University of Minnesota and the University of Oregon have investigated this topic through developing and implementing “data information literacy” (DIL) instruction programs for graduate students in a range of science and engineering disciplines.

More information about the DIL Symposium can be found at: http://wiki.lib.purdue.edu/display/ste/Symposium

The schedule for the symposium is available at: http://wiki.lib.purdue.edu/display/ste/DIL+Symposium+Schedule
