NISO Virtual Conference, Effective Data Management

Effective data management is widely recognized as a necessity, including the development of robust strategies for data collection, as well as ensuring appropriate management, handling, and preservation of those data. But is this being achieved? What practices are perceived by the research community as worthwhile and fit to purpose? Are there speed bumps in our processes that need smoothing out or eliminating? Do the available platforms provide the right services to the right people at an affordable price? What emerging challenges do we need to start addressing? This event established the state of current practice and identified potential areas of concern. Confirmed speakers include Kristi Holmes, Director, Galter Health Sciences Library, Northwestern University; Kristin Lee, Librarian for Research Data,Tufts University; Clara Llebot Lorente, Data Management Specialist, Oregon State University; Maria Praetzellis, Product Manager, Research Data Management, UC Curation Center, California Digital Library; Carly Strasser, Program Manager, Open Science. Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and Keith Webster, Dean of University Libraries, Carnegie Mellon University.
