A Subject Librarian's Guide to Collaborating on E-Science Projects
Garritano, Jeremy R.; Carlson, Jake R.
Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, n57 Spr 2009
For liaison or subject librarians, entering into the emerging area of providing researchers with data services or partnering with them on cyberinfrastructure projects can be a daunting task. This article will provide some advice as to what to expect and how providing data services can be folded into other liaison duties. New skills for librarians and traditional skills that can be adapted to data curation work will also be discussed. A case study on the authors' experiences collaborating with two chemistry faculty on an e-science project serves as the framework for the majority of this article.
