Got Data? New Roles for Libraries in Shaping 21st Century Research
ALCTS' Presidents Program

Monday, June 28, 10:30-Noon

Research in the Information Age is driven by digital data. Libraries are emerging as critical partners in the curation, access, use, re-use, and preservation of research data. Digital stewardship, and the requisite cyber-infrastructure, economic models, and policies required to administer and protect research data, present both new opportunities and challenges for 21st century libraries. In this talk, we describe the emerging role for Libraries as stewards of valued digital research collections.
