Business Librarian Lisa Zilinski was invited to present at the Data Curation Profiles Symposium organized by Purdue University Libraries on September 24th.

Purdue University Libraries’ Institute of Museum and Library Services funded grant, “Understanding Curation through the use of Data Curation Profiles” provided workshops in using the Profile to over 360 librarians. The goal of this project was to provide librarians with the knowledge, training and means to engage faculty in discussions about their research data, how they work with and manage their data, and their needs in organizing, sharing, publishing, or preserving this data. The symposium was a wrap-up of the research that went into the project. Practitioners talked about their experiences discussing and using the Profile.

Zilinski presented on the work she accomplished on data management plans for USF in Lakeland faculty, in collaboration with Library Assistant Sonia Wade Lorenz.

Publication of interest: Science and Engineering Indicators 2010

The National Science Board just published the Science and Engineering Indicators for 2010.

“The indicators included in Science and Engineering Indicators 2010 derive from a variety of national, international, public, and private sources and may not be strictly comparable in a statistical sense. As noted in the text, some data are weak, and the metrics and models relating them to each other and to economic and social outcomes invite further development. Thus, the emphasis is on broad trends; individual data points and findings should be interpreted with care. The overview focuses on the trend in the United States and many other parts of the world toward the development of more knowledge-intensive economies, in which research, its commercial exploitation, and other intellectual work play a growing role. Industry and government play key roles in these changes. The overview examines how these U.S. science and technology (S&T) patterns and trends affect the position of the United States, using broadly comparable data wherever possible for the United States, the European Union (EU), Japan, China, and selected other Asian economies (the Asia-9: India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, and Vietnam).”
