Big Data Opps for Info Pros

11:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.
Terence Huwe, Library Director (Emeritus), Institute for Research on Labor & Employment, University of California, USA

Big Data and its transformative potential has exploded but what about changing the “culture” of research to facilitate greater collaboration. Researchers are increasingly being asked to preserve their datasets, and to adopt widely recognized best practices to encourage the re-use of data. Universities and their libraries are working hard to develop coordinated services that can ease the burdens—and raise the potential—of data management initiatives. Huwe provides an overview of some of the leading projects and their goals, new roles for librarians, and the challenge of bringing about the necessary cultural changes to make Big Data initiatives thrive. Listen to his intro and join Track A on Wed for lots more on the topic!
