Toni Wilson, a well-known industry expert in CI source collection, leads an interactive course on unique sources, databases, and Web search to speed up and increase collection value. Wilson has over 25 years of experience, both as a consultant and as a corporate intelligence professional at LexisNexis.  You will learn how to identify lesser known and recently available sources specific to your collection needs, use fee-based and free Web sources that are unique, and employ database and Web search tools and techniques to collect relevant information with efficiency.  With today's emphasis on cost efficiency, it's important to remain nimble and up to date.

Using the Data Curation Profile as a Means to Engage Researchers

PRICE: $345.00 Member/ $230.00 Student Member/ $400.00 Non-Member

Many in the library world believe librarians have an opportunity to play a vital role in the development and stewardship of publicly accessible collections of research data sets, a process often referred to as data curation. However, working with data is a new, unfamiliar area for many librarians. The Data Curation Profile Toolkit is a set of inter-related resources designed to capture information about data generated by single scientists/scholars/labs based on their needs and preferences for these data. The DCP Toolkit can be used as a means for launching discussions between librarians and faculty, exploring research data needs, and helping to plan for the development of data services.
