The University of Oregon Libraries has taken a proactive position in supporting data curation with the creation of a science data librarian position and, later, a social sciences data librarian. In order to support the data management, education, and curation activities of the data librarians, digital library services had taken an active role in providing guidance on metadata, tools, and preservation. This has, in-turn, reshaped how digital library services has envisioned the greater infrastructure for digital collections and preservation. In this presentation, I will discuss our successes, failures, and areas of activities still to be determined.
24,000 students27,000 are graduates4,500 faculty and staff
Their job is to do outreach, coordinate with campus partners, sell data management, instructionDigital Library Services provides the infrastructure to let them do thatAnd, if you’re wondering where humanities data is, the Electronic Records Archivist, Kira Homo, and I, as classists/medievalists, just have to doDigital collections increased over 400%, number of items 1600% in five years with static staffing
New Services: website, training, dmp consultationQuestions: What else? What our repository good enough? was it big enough? did it do what it needed to do? what else could we do to help faculty and students and also sell our services?
Collaboration across campus units (Tech transfer, human subjects, IS), led by Science Data Librarian Brian WestraDLS and E-Archivist: Metadata, File formats, Archiving & Preservation
Workshops and One-on-one consultingWho came?Political Science, Landscape Architecture, Molecular Biology, Human Physiology, Chemistry, Linguistics, Communication, Romance Languages, OceanographyRole of DLS at beginning but not needed as much later. Internal training. (Don’t need a team of six descending upon researchers)Workflow of a DMP consultation
How to organize items/collections/bitstreamsWhat schema to use?How many schema’s to support and what fields.
Pre-archiving/ workflowNeed to be db experts not just metadataMatters for how to get data both in and out
Yes, it’s more than just back-up!Code?Formats?Size?Processes
Can’t be an expert on everyrepostiory
Let digital and small data collections ride the big data wave
Context for Arts & Humanities work, not just journal article or bookWebsite designed by Interactive Media GroupDarkArchive supported by University of Central FloridaFull access repository - UO
Workflow for data management consultation and Data librarians can now largely consult on DMPs without our helpWebsiteWorking with other departments on campusIntegrating additional metadata schema into our workflow and DOIs
Trying to scope it all. Thinking too much about big data
Other units / researchers now working on these issuesCampus Cyberinfrastructure?Generalists vs. Specialists?Timeliness?
