From the GMR: January GMR Webinar - Don't Know Much about eScience?
Hello, GMR Members,
We are delighted to inform you of an upcoming webinar on January 20, 2011 at 3 pm (CT). The topic is eScience, and the roles for health science librarians. Our speaker is Sally Gore, who is the Head of the Reference & Scholarly Communication Services at the Lamar Soutter Library at the UMass Medical School.
Don't Know Much about eScience?
e-Science is an emerging research methodology with an emphasis upon data and networks. As researchers in biomedicine and other health-related disciplines increasingly utilize today's technology in their work, they produce immense amounts of data that can, ideally, be shared and repurposed to speed up scientific discovery. Similarly, they use networking tools to find, develop and work in a collaborative environment no longer constrained by geographical limitations. Can health sciences librarians with their skills in information management and organization, as well as success in building partnerships across areas, find a role in this new area? The answer is "YES!"
