OCLC Americas Regional Council Member Meeting and Symposium: The Hope and the Hype of MOOCs Exhibitor session Marriott
Grand C-E
Description :

The importance, accessibility and cost of education is on the minds of everyone today—administrators, faculty, librarians, politicians and parents. In this environment, MOOCs seem to offer a lifeline to schools and communities seeking to reinvent education and lifelong learning in the Internet Age. But the conversation about MOOCs is complex and evolving. New partnerships are being formed to deliver tools and curriculum. New business models are emerging. Questions about accreditation and measurement abound. Do MOOCs represent a sea change for both public and academic libraries? Or just a new twist on distance learning? Join OCLC at the ALA Midwinter symposium for a lively debate among MOOC practitioners, promoters… and skeptics.

203 A
Description :

We will feature two presentations.

Pilots to Program: UC San Diego Research Data Curation Pilots and the Library Research Data Curation Program
Mary Linn Bergstrom
UC San Diego
In the spring of 2011, the UC San Diego Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) Implementation Team invited campus researchers and research teams to participate in a Research Curation and Data Management Pilot program. The projects were chosen based on a number of criteria:how they represented the range of campus research and the various services they needed. The pilot process began in Sept 2011 and will be completed in early 2014.
Participants received services: assistance with the creation of metadata to make data discoverable and available for future re-use; ingest of data into the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s storage system; ingest of datasets and digital objects into the Library’s Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) for long-term access and discovery; movement of data into Chronopolis; data object identifier services; and training classes.
Implementation details of the services and the new Research Data Curation Program (RDCP) created at the Library based on the pilots will be discussed. RDCP supports data lifecycle management and will focus on aspects of contemporary scholarship: data creation and storage, description and metadata creation, citation and publication, and long-term preservation and access. The RDCP will provide services campus users can select to meet their needs. It will also provide support for data management requirements from national funding agencies.
Data Services as Information Services: or, Old Wine, New Bottle
Ivey Glendon and Michele Claibourn
University of Virginia Library
The currency of data in scholarly research is on the rise. The data supporting research across all academic disciplines is subject to the norms and requirements for access and sharing that has characterized the research output itself. In July 2013 the University of Virginia Library created a new library service to support data-intensive research initiatives. Research Data Services (RDS) is dedicated to the collaborative collection, management, use, and preservation of data across the research lifecycle, and offers coordinated support services and expertise for data-intensive research and teaching.
The growth of data-oriented research and of publicly-available datasets demands data literacy across the institution. We will relay how the RDS team serve and interact with the university research enterprise. Composed of data librarians charged with data acquisitions and discovery, specialists in statistical analysis and GIS engaged with training in the use of quantitative and spatial data, metadata and data management experts providing guidance and expertise on the creation of data documentation for preservation and dissemination, and digital media technologists supporting training to capture and transform data, the team supports researchers throughout the research data lifecycle.
We will discuss our organization – seeding data services throughout the library rather than concentrating them into a single unit – as well as the challenges we’ve encountered in gaining recognition within the university as a voice in the developing discussion around quantitative research at UVa and a service provider in the rapidly evolving research ecosystem.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

Bridging Deaf Cultures @ Your Library Committee meeting, Discussion/Interest group Pennsylvania Convention Center

All types of libraries are involved, and all types of members are needed.
