Free Webinar - What you need to know about SHARE, CHORUS, and Open Access

SHARE, CHORUS, and Open Access: What you need to know In early 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) directed Federal agencies with more than $100M in R&D Expenditures to develop plans to make federally funded research openly available to the public within one year of publication. Partly in response to this directive, university and library groups partnered to develop the SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) to promote the preservation of, access to, and reuse of scholarly research. Similarly, publishers, scholarly societies, and service providers came together to create the Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States (CHORUS) to increase public access to peer-reviewed publications that report on federally funded research. With similar missions and goals, how might the two groups might work together to promote access to research? Where do they overlap, and how do they differ? And how might individual librarians get involved with these efforts?   Register Now   In honor of Open Access Week, Judy Ruttenberg, from SHARE, and Howard Ratner, from CHORUS will come together for a free 1-hour webinar to discuss the following:
  • What has been the response so far to the OSTP mandate among different federal departments?         
  • What are the functions and goals of SHARE and CHORUS and how do the groups relate to the OSTP mandate?
  • Where do the two groups overlap, where do they complement each other, and how do they differ?
  • How can the groups work together to promote access to research?
  • What can librarians do to help their patrons benefit from the efforts of both groups?
Their words will be followed by some Q & A led by David Ross, executive publisher of open access at SAGE. Have a question you want answered in the webinar?

Video and content from the Data Information Literacy Symposium held at Purdue University in September 2013 has been fully archived and is now available for viewing at

The DIL Symposium was a component of the Data Information Literacy Project and was comprised of presentations, exercises and discussions about roles for practicing librarians in teaching competencies in data management and curation.  Attendees of the Symposium developed strategies for creating instructional programs suitable for the needs of the students and faculty at their respective institutions.

Data Management Report Published

Research Data Management Principles, Practices, and Prospects November 2013. 99 pp. $0ISBN 978-1-932326-47-5CLIR pub 160 PDF Download of Report (1.8 MB) >> This is a web-only report—it is not available in print.   This report examines how research institutions are responding to data management requirements of the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and other federal agencies. It also considers what role, if any, academic libraries and the library and information science profession should have in supporting researchers’ data management needs. University of North Texas (UNT) Library Director Martin Halbert opens the report with an overview of the DataRes Project, a two-year investigation of data management practices conducted at UNT with colleagues Spencer D. C. Keralis, Shannon Stark, and William E. Moen. His introduction is followed by a series of papers that were presented at the DataRes Symposium that UNT organized in December 2012. The volume includes a copy of “The Denton Declaration: An Open Data Manifesto,” written in May 2012 by a group of technologists and librarians, scholars and researchers, university administrators, and other stakeholders who gathered at UNT to discuss and articulate best practices and emerging trends in research data management. Mariette Papić’s poster for The Denton Declaration is available here.

Data Presentations

Throughout October, there has been a Duraspace webinar series about research data in repositories highlighting the new curation program at UC- San Diego.  If you haven't been able to attend any of the webinars, here are links to the slides and recordings of the first two webinars.    Duraspace Community Webinar Series: Research Data in Repositories

Today's TLR Presentation - DATA Resources

At today's TLR presentation - which was on data management and curation - a lively exchange of web resources was going on during the Q & A segment. Here are some of the comments and sites from participants: Amanda Wilson: Harnessing the Power of Digital Data for Science and Society report: Bob Sweet: See Purdue Libraries' data curation profiles toolkit. Andy: also see both California Digital Library and Purdue Library are members John Cherney: A few examples of data management plans: Amanda Wilson: Johns Hopkins is attempting something like that, Roberto: Rita Evans: From the California Digital Library (CDL) - The Biosciences Library at UC Berkeley put a page together on Data Depositories in the Life Science to help researchers comply with NSF requirements; something all of us could do??
