The Priscilla M. Mayden Lecture



eScience and the Evolution of Library Services


Presented by Bart Ragon, Associate Director for Knowledge Integration, Research, and Technology, University of Virginia


Science is changing and changing fast. Concepts like the data life cycle, data curation, translational science, high performance computing, and data sharing are having an impact on how science is conducted. At the same time, libraries are adjusting services to meet the needs of highly networked and technically savvy patron groups. E-science is a term that describes the dynamically re-shaping of collaboration and workflows in science and creating unique and important opportunities for librarianship. This presentation will explore potential roles for librarians in e-science, how new collaborations might form, and the role of the libraries in the data life cycle.



Sponsored by the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library.
