    "Developing Professional Skills in STEM Students: Data Information Literacy"

    Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on September 24th, 2014

    Lisa D. Zilinski et al. have published "Developing Professional Skills in STEM Students: Data Information Literacy" in Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship.

    Here's an excerpt:

    Undergraduate STEM students are increasingly expected to have some data use skills upon graduation, whether they pursue post-graduate education or move into industry. This project was an initial foray into the application of data information literacy competencies to training undergraduate students to identify markers of data and information quality. The data consumer training appeared within two courses to help students evaluate data objects, including databases and datasets available on the Internet. The application of the Data Credibility Checklist provides a foundation for developing data reuse competencies. Based upon the initial presentation of the content, it became obvious that students need very basic introductions to data concepts, including definitions for database and dataset, and the process of data object discovery.

        Posted in Research Libraries on September 24th, 2014

        The Council on Library and Information Resources has released The Changing Landscape of Library and Information Services: What Presidents, Provosts, and Finance Officers Need to Know.

        Here's an excerpt:

        CIOs Richard Holmgren, of Allegheny College, and Gene Spencer, of Ursinus College, draw on the workshop discussions to summarize the key challenges and opportunities facing LITS organizations. Developments of the past decade-from the ubiquity of cell phones to the growth of virtual server infrastructure and the maturation of open-source software support models-have created new opportunities for LITS organizations to improve student outcomes, increase revenue, and manage costs. The authors discuss these opportunities and identify the core competencies that LITS organizations will need to support positive institutional change in the decade ahead.
