Discussion of the practices and researches in United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Japan.
September 28 (Mon), 2020 @ Zoom
It has been strongly encouraged to share various kinds of data for helping researchers all over the world work together and solve global-scale social problems, achieving high transparency of governments, and contributing to the public good. Although a lot of data have become publicly available, there remain several challenges on “how to effectively use the open data”, e.g. difficulty of finding necessary open data and inappropriate data format. This workshop focuses on the use of the open data, and invites researchers from four countries, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Japan, for discussing the practices and researches in each country.
In the open data movement, academic libraries in the U.S. are collaborating with IT and research administration to offer researchers integrated data management services from data management planning, sharing, analyzing and reusing. Several major trends have emerged to meet those needed services: big data research, data science degree and certificate programs, metadata standards for data sets, research data repositories, and professional development for academic librarians.
This presentation will focus on several U.S. academic libraries regarding their data repositories, data management practices, professional support and related issues.
