Data Refuge: Where Are We Now and Where Do We Go From Here?
DataRescue events have proliferated since the beginning of 2017. Their goal has been to create trustworthy copies of federal data in multiple locations so as to maintain continued accessibility for researchers and the public. This joint Hot Topics and Scholarly Communications session will explore librarians’ role as strategies evolve for preserving high value data, including climate change and environmental data. The audience will have the opportunity to engage with speakers who have been involved in Data Rescue events as well as to discuss actions librarians might take such as communicating science-related issues to the public. The speakers will be Laurie Allen (University of Pennsylvania) and Scott Carlson (Rice University). – Sponsored by STS Hot Topics Discussion Group, STS Scholarly Communications Committee and the ACRL Scholarly Communications Discussion Group.
