  • Why am I on this stage?*AAAS Confererence*Started at UIC in Dec 2010 (Public Small Town to Urban R1 Medical)*Just following the NSF DMP Mandate*Database Designer –been working with data, cleaning, building –this appealed. *Started seeing Data related things turning up in job ads*Who is doing it in libraries? GIS, IT, and Catalogers—Linked library data, FRBR, RDA
  • So I’m supposed to be at least slightly autodidactic, right? I dug, I read I listened. Today we’re going to go through the what, where, and who that I’ve identified thus farNOT Comprehensive but a launch point for you or someone at your institution who is trying to get up to speed
  • Basics of Data: *Comes in all shapes and sizes*Clean*Good? *Good doesn’t always mean complex or vice versa*I charge by the hour to clean data*Also includes STATISTICS and DATA ANALYSIS *We don’t all need to statisticians*Software: SPSS/SAS/R, Mathematica (what’s behind Wolfram Alpha), and Advanced Excel. Excel –also works for grocery lists, though it’s harder to do calculations on those tables. *Library ComponentsMetadata and OntologiesSources of DataData Management Plans Basically: Find/Acquire, Describe, and Provide Access. Gee, now doesn’t that sound familiar…. Metadata—lot easier to find, we’ve been doing that for much longer, now it’s finding content appropriate ontologiesSources—best thing I can recommend is go out and look. I’ll give you some links, go digging around in other people’s LibGuidesE.G. Federal Government –alcohol DMPs are a natural for us.
