About the Symposium:
"Data: Collecting, Using, Managing"
3rd Biennial Kathleen A. Zar Symposium
April 25, 2014
The John Crerar Library
The University of Chicago
Data is captured by computers and instruments on a continual basis, flooding researchers in images, video, audio, logs, simulations, and more. This data is crucial to research, teaching and learning at academic institutions around the world. Understanding the impact of data on researchers, libraries and institutions as a whole is critical to achieving long-term data preservation, appropriate sharing among communities, and enabling transformative new science. This symposium will provide participants with an understanding of how data is used in real world applications, as well as examples of collaborative efforts between institutions, groups or individuals specific to collection, use, access, preservation and overall management of data.
