Thanks to recently received support from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, the April 25th Kathleen A. Zar Symposium will be webcast live at http://uchic.ag/live
Data is captured by computers and instruments on a continual basis, flooding researchers in images, video, audio, logs, simulations, and more. This data is crucial to research, teaching and learning at academic institutions around the world. Understanding the impact of data on researchers, libraries and institutions as a whole is critical to achieving long-term data preservation, appropriate sharing among communities, and enabling transformative new science. This symposium will provide participants with an understanding of how data is used in real world applications, as well as examples of collaborative efforts between institutions, groups or individuals specific to collection, use, access, preservation and overall management of data.
