Call for Papers
The Call for Papers for ASLI 2016 in New Orleans is Open!
With the theme of the 2016 AMS Annual Meeting, the AMS is emphasizing academic and research strength, and also connecting that research to the benefits that society gains from their science. As librarians and information professionals we know the importance and benefits of outreach to our primary clientele, the communities we serve, and in many cases the general public. Our library services and resources would be underutilized if we did not routinely and consistently promote them to our communities, and we also need to constantly strategize and plan for evolving services & resources, such as digitization projects, research data curation services, delivering reference and instruction in new ways, and collecting feedback from our users to improve our services and resources. ASLI needs to remain strong by employing outreach strategies to recruit new members, keeping current members engaged, and responding to members’ needs through surveys and discussions. ASLI invites papers addressing any of the above topics.
2nd Joint Symposium on Data Stewardship, ASLI and EIPT:
Data Stewardship: Increasing Connectivity, Discoverability, and Usability
The open availability and wide accessibility of scientific articles, data sets, and other digital resources is becoming the norm for 21st century science. Growing numbers of repositories of scientific resources enable researchers to discover, understand, and build upon previous work at greater scales than was previously possible. A key challenge for the data stewardship community, however, is the current siloing of resources within unconnected repositories. Many interrelationships exist between research articles, data, software, and other services that are held in different repositories or systems. Building a more interconnected web of repositories would increase public access to geosciences information and data. It would increase the visibility of data and information across the geosciences, thereby increasing the discoverability and utility of data through explicitly linking data to important documentation and associated tools and services.
The data stewardship community is working toward a long term vision where researchers can easily deposit resources in relevant repositories, and links between repositories can be created routinely.
This session calls for submissions that present current work on any aspect of this vision, including tools/processes for: exchanging information across repositories, building connections between related resources (e.g. data, software, services, etc.), measuring the impact that data sets or repositories have within their user communities, among other topics. Submissions may focus on technical, policy, or organizational developments, and are welcomed for work based within data centers, libraries, and scientific research/development organizations.
