NISO Webinar, Data - Creation, Stewardship, Use

Now, more than ever, the information community is thinking about data and how best to support its creation, stewardship, and use  Whether we are talking about content as data, research data, or data pertaining to online use and behaviors, we continue to amass ever-more data with no plan for storing it, no good way to parse it, and nothing but a vague hope of "automating" the hard work of cleaning it up, which only creates problems down the road. This webinar assessed the data needs of researchers and the response from the information community, from a variety of perspectives. Confirmed speakers include: Bob Boissy, Director of Account Development, Springer-Nature; Gwen Evans, Vice President of Global Library Relations, Elsevier, Lisa Federer, NLM Data Science and Open Science Librarian, Office of Strategic Initiatives, National Library of Medicine;  Srinivasan KG Govindarajan, Senior Vice President, Strategy & Solutions of Straive; Graham Smith, Research Data Manager, Editorial Operations, Springer-Nature; and Jennifer Thøgersen, researcher and PhD candidate, Oslo Metropolitan University.
