The role of research libraries in a
European e-science environment


             Wouter Schallier
         LIBER Executive Director
About LIBER

 www.libereurope.eu
 The largest network of European
  research/academic libraries: 400 institutions,
  from over 40 countries
 Mission: to represent and promote the
  interests of European research/academic
  libraries, and of their users: students and
  researchers
What is E-science?

 Research that requires/is
   Large scale computing resources
   Data-intensive
   Carried out over the internet
   Collaborative (team science, virtual science
    communities)
   Distributed (networked science)
   Interdisciplinary
   Heterogeneous
It’s all about LARGE amounts of data

 “Data are no longer considered as interim
  products to be discarded once the research
  reporting them is published. Rather, they
  have become important sources of
  scholarly content to be used and re-used.”
  (Borgman, The role of libraries in e-science)

Ex. Hubble telescope, CERN Large Hadron Collider etc.
Sharing data = publishing

 Documents:
   Formal: books, journal articles, proceedings
    etc.
   Gray literature: reports, working papers etc.
   Websites, blogs, wiki’s, tweets etc.
 Primary/raw data:
   result of observation, experimentation,
    calculation etc.
 And all mixtures of these
Example: conference

   PPT’s
   Abstracts
   Biographies
   Podcasts
   Interviews
   Reports of break out sessions
   …
   Full text papers
Why now?

 E-science is already a reality but we can do
  more
 Internet, global connectivity
 Data deluge, data collection, data mining
 New and cheap means to share, distribute
  and publish information quickly
 More efficient use of technology in R&E
  essential for European knowledge
  economy
 Time of crisis = time of opportunities
The paradox of e-science

 Race against the time: the new generations
  are arriving at the university
Vs.
 Cultural change: how do you make
  researchers share data?
   How do you make funding agencies reward
    collaboration and sharing data?
   Current copyright/IPR rules are hindrance for
    e-science
Incentives for sharing data

 There is no other way
 Collaboration is a necessity
 Gives visibility and recognition
Europe’s vision

 “Digital Europe – a vision for the next 5
  years”: 4 priorities:
   Easy access to digital content (“modern
    copyright and IPR rules are essential for the
    development of attractive digital content”)
   Safe and consumer-friendly space for mobile
    payments
   Digital economy open to small businesses
   Innovative ICT solutions for low-carbon economy
  (V. Reding, Brussels, 9 July 2009)
European e-science infrastructures

 EC E-infrastructures Concertation and
  Consultation Meeting, Brussels 12-13
  October 2009 (http://www. beliefproject.org):
   GEANT (backbone for European data
    networking)
   Sharing computational resources (e-science
    grid, supercomputing)
   Global virtual research communities
   Scientific data
   Simulation and visualisation
The role of OA

 Essential
 Results of publicly funded research should be
  available in public domain
 Allows verification and replication of findings
 Stimulates international competition based on
  excellence
Data management issues

 Ubiquitous, trusted and easy access to
  (discovery of) research data
 Integrity
 Version management
 Semantics: how to interpret data?
 Ownership of data
 Long term preservation
 Visualisation
Data management issues (2)

 Licensing
 Technology and sustainable infrastructure
  (funding!)
 Repositories
 Use and re-use
 HR: data managers
 “Data repositories may become the new
  special collections for research libraries”
  (Borgman)
Into the workflow of R&E!

 Kill the library as book and journal store!
 Integration of library services in virtual
  research and education environments
 Support to data producers
 Recruitment of content
 Digital repositories: data!
 Enhanced publications: annotations,
  recommendations, primary data, podcasts
  etc.
Re-invent the library

 Observe the angry young (wo)men
 They ALL deal with information/data!
 How do they:
   Access
   Disseminate
   Preserve
   Legitimise CONTENT
New strategies

 E-science requires
     New strategies for research support
     New infrastructures
     Integration in scholarly workflows
     Skilled library professionals
LIBER events 2010

 Annual Conference “Re-inventing the library.
  The challenges of the new information
  environment”, 29 June-2 July 2010
 “Books and reading in the digital age”. 5-6

The role of research libraries in a European e-science environment

  • 1. The role of research libraries in a European e-science environment Wouter Schallier LIBER Executive Director
  • 2. About LIBER  www.libereurope.eu  The largest network of European research/academic libraries: 400 institutions, from over 40 countries  Mission: to represent and promote the interests of European research/academic libraries, and of their users: students and researchers
  • 3. What is E-science?  Research that requires/is  Large scale computing resources  Data-intensive  Carried out over the internet  Collaborative (team science, virtual science communities)  Distributed (networked science)  Interdisciplinary  Heterogeneous
  • 4. It’s all about LARGE amounts of data  “Data are no longer considered as interim products to be discarded once the research reporting them is published. Rather, they have become important sources of scholarly content to be used and re-used.” (Borgman, The role of libraries in e-science) Ex. Hubble telescope, CERN Large Hadron Collider etc.
  • 5. Sharing data = publishing  Documents:  Formal: books, journal articles, proceedings etc.  Gray literature: reports, working papers etc.  Websites, blogs, wiki’s, tweets etc.  Primary/raw data:  result of observation, experimentation, calculation etc.  And all mixtures of these
  • 6. Example: conference  PPT’s  Abstracts  Biographies  Podcasts  Interviews  Reports of break out sessions  …  Full text papers
  • 7. Why now?  E-science is already a reality but we can do more  Internet, global connectivity  Data deluge, data collection, data mining  New and cheap means to share, distribute and publish information quickly  More efficient use of technology in R&E essential for European knowledge economy  Time of crisis = time of opportunities
  • 8. The paradox of e-science  Race against the time: the new generations are arriving at the university Vs.  Cultural change: how do you make researchers share data?  How do you make funding agencies reward collaboration and sharing data?  Current copyright/IPR rules are hindrance for e-science
  • 9. Incentives for sharing data  There is no other way  Collaboration is a necessity  Gives visibility and recognition
  • 10. Europe’s vision  “Digital Europe – a vision for the next 5 years”: 4 priorities:  Easy access to digital content (“modern copyright and IPR rules are essential for the development of attractive digital content”)  Safe and consumer-friendly space for mobile payments  Digital economy open to small businesses  Innovative ICT solutions for low-carbon economy (V. Reding, Brussels, 9 July 2009)
  • 11. European e-science infrastructures  EC E-infrastructures Concertation and Consultation Meeting, Brussels 12-13 October 2009 (http://www. beliefproject.org):  GEANT (backbone for European data networking)  Sharing computational resources (e-science grid, supercomputing)  Global virtual research communities  Scientific data  Simulation and visualisation
  • 12. The role of OA  Essential  Results of publicly funded research should be available in public domain  Allows verification and replication of findings  Stimulates international competition based on excellence
  • 13. Data management issues  Ubiquitous, trusted and easy access to (discovery of) research data  Integrity  Version management  Semantics: how to interpret data?  Ownership of data  Long term preservation  Visualisation
  • 14. Data management issues (2)  Licensing  Technology and sustainable infrastructure (funding!)  Repositories  Use and re-use  HR: data managers  “Data repositories may become the new special collections for research libraries” (Borgman)
  • 15. Into the workflow of R&E!  Kill the library as book and journal store!  Integration of library services in virtual research and education environments  Support to data producers  Recruitment of content  Digital repositories: data!  Enhanced publications: annotations, recommendations, primary data, podcasts etc.
  • 16. Re-invent the library  Observe the angry young (wo)men  They ALL deal with information/data!  How do they:  Access  Disseminate  Preserve  Legitimise CONTENT
  • 17. New strategies  E-science requires  New strategies for research support  New infrastructures  Integration in scholarly workflows  Skilled library professionals
  • 18. LIBER events 2010  Annual Conference “Re-inventing the library. The challenges of the new information environment”, 29 June-2 July 2010  “Books and reading in the digital age”. 5-6 July 2010 (to be confirmed)  Interested?  Subscribe to LIBER-NEWS/LIBER-ALL  Join LIBER on LinkedIn  Subscribe to RSS at http://www.libereurope.eu
