Research Data: Who will share what, with whom, when, and why? - 0 views

  •  
    Abstract: The deluge of scientific research data has excited the general public, as well as the
    scientific community, with the possibilities for better understanding of scientific
    problems, from climate to culture. For data to be available, researchers must be willing
    and able to share them. The policies of governments, funding agencies, journals, and
    university tenure and promotion committees also influence how, when, and whether
    research data are shared. Data are complex objects. Their purposes and the methods

    by which they are produced vary widely across scientific fields, as do the criteria for
    sharing them. To address these challenges, it is necessary to examine the arguments for
    sharing data and how those arguments match the motivations and interests of the
    scientific community and the public. Four arguments are examined: to make the results
    of publicly funded data available to the public, to enable others to ask new questions of
    extant data, to advance the state of science, and to reproduce research. Libraries need
    to consider their role in the face of each of these arguments, and what expertise and
    systems they require for data curation.

A Slice of Research Life: Information Support for Research in the United States - 2 views

  •  
    Report on a survey of "38 individuals at four prominent U.S. research universities," reflecting how researchers choose "adequate" rather than "optimal" information solutions and "use online tools and commercial
    services related to their discipline rather than tools provided by their university." Concerns about long term data durability abound.

From Dominance to Decline? The Future of Bibliographic Discovery, Access and Delivery - 2 views

  •  
    A review of four bibliographic utility studies on library catalogs points out that the library catalog is no longer the starting point for students and researchers and that it has been eclipsed by easier-to-use and more convenient tools such as Google Books, Google Scholar, and LibraryThing. The author suggests that catalog developers learn from these tools and draw on their metadata; include "social" enhancements such as tagging, comments, and reviews; develop systems that are user-focused rather than librarian-focused; forsake the local catalog for the union catalog to reduce duplication of effort

Self-Assessment of a Long-Term Archive for Interdisciplinary Scientific Data as a Trust... - 2 views

  •  
    "Long-term preservation and stewardship of scientific data and research-related information are vitally important to future science and scholarship. Scientific data archives can offer capabilities for managing and preserving disciplinary and interdisciplinary data for research, education, and decision-making activities of future communities of users. Meeting the requirements for a trusted digital repository will help to ensure that today's collections of scientific data will be available in the future. A continuing self-assessment of a long-term archive for interdisciplinary scientific data is being conducted to identify the additional steps needed for it to become a trustworthy repository. Recommendations include a strategy for collaborative organizational sustainability, a model for submission and workflow to ingest interdisciplinary scientific data into a repository, and a plan for facilitating intra-organizational transfer between repositories."
