This webinar will focus on the on-going need for information professionals to be well-versed in data science skills in order to successfully support the work of the students, scholars, and other professionals you serve. While you may be quite familiar with the research data lifecycle, what additional tools or support do you need in order to extract, wrangle, analyze, and present data for, from, and about your organization? What management challenges does your organization face in ensuring that staff are sufficiently prepared and supported? What skills should be looked for when hiring? How and why should data science education be implemented? What policies or practices have organizations found useful? These questions and more will be answered by our panel of experts from across the information community.
Confirmed speakers include Stephanie Labou, Data Science Librarian, University of California, San Diego; Courtney Butler, Data Science Librarian, Federal Reserve Bank -Kansas City; Julie Goldman, Countway Research Data Services Librarian, Harvard; and Ron Daniel, Director, Elsevier Labs, Elsevier.
