Numeric and Geospatial Data Services in Academic Libraries Interest Group

Charge

To bring together ACRL members who are actively engaged in the planning for, oversight of, and/or provision of data services within academic libraries. Providing patron support in the acquisition, storage and use of numeric and geospatial data is fast becoming an expected add-on to public and technical services in academic and research libraries. The responsibility of this group to provide a forum by which librarians and academic library staff engaged in these services can provide/receive insight into, examples of, and training on how data services are developed and delivered. This group may also serve as a bridge between other professional associations dedicated to the provision of data services in research environments (e.g. IASSIST and APDU).
