Data_at_the_Reference_Desk_20140429

  1. 1. DATA AT THE REFERENCE DESK Exploring Reference Resources Elliott Shuppy (shuppy@wisc.edu), 2014
  2. 2. Central Question: What do we as librarians need to know about locating research data if we get asked at the reference desk?
  3. 3. Objectives: Today we will... 1) differentiate between registry and repository 2) select a registry and to locate research data repositories 3) search for and locate a data set within a repository
  4. 4. Research Analyses vs. Data (Top) Jaatinen K, Jaari S, O'Hara RB, Öst M, Merilä J. (2009). Relatedness and spatial proximity as determinants of host-parasite interactions in the brood parasitic Barrow's goldeneye (Bucephala islandica). Molecular Ecology 18: 2713-2721. doi:10.1111/j.1365-294X.2009.04223.x (Right) Jaatinen K, Jaari S, O'Hara R, Öst M, Merilä J. (2009). Data from: Relatedness and spatial proximity as determinants of host-parasite interactions in the brood parasitic Barrow's goldeneye (Bucephala islandica). Dryad Digital Repository. doi:10.5061/dryad.1600
  5. 5. Registries • Help identify and locate research repositories • Multidisciplinary • Increase access and visibility • Both users and bibliographers create and curate records
  6. 6. Activity 1 Individually in your assigned registry, locate possible repositories given this reference question: “I’m trying to find research data in evolutionary biology.” A) Databib (databib.org) B) Re3data (re3data.org)
  7. 7. Coming in 2015 • Databib and Re3data plan to merge their two projects Single sustainable registry Incorporate best features of each Reduce duplication re3data.org Team. (2014, March 25). DataCite, re3data.org, and Databib Announce Collaboration. Retrieved from http://www.re3data.org/2014/03/datacite- re3data-org-databib-collaboration/
  8. 8. Repositories • Allows permanent storage and access to research data • Heterogeneous landscape: Subject specific Metadata standards differ Curators vary
  9. 9. Activity 2 All, using Dryad (datadryad.org) locate the correct research data based on the revised reference question: “Specifically, I’m trying to find recent data on cyprinid fishes. I’m pretty sure it was in the Journal of Evolutionary Biology.”
  10. 10. What is here now • Accesses data from most influential repositories in one place • Difficult to centralize data due to varying metadata schemas
  11. 11. Wrap-up • Not a perfect process, we will have to dig • There are many individual resources • No centralization even with “centralized tools” • Continue conversation around data reference
