Call for Participation
Increasingly, researchers rely on academic libraries for support with the data lifecycle. As responses to these needs emerge within our profession, it is vital to come together to share ideas, struggles, and successes. The MSU Libraries are providing an opportunity to collaborate and strategize at the inaugural Scholarly Communication Summit, on Friday, July 22, 2016. We invite you to join us and submit proposals to share your experiences and expertise in providing data services to researchers. Registration is free, and lunch will be provided.
We invite proposals for workshops, panels, lightning talks, posters, and presentations. We welcome topics that focus on:
·         Data Management Services and Tools
·         Data Management & Institutional Repositories
·         Data Management & Open Access
·         Data Storage Solutions
·         DMPTool
·         Open Data and Open Scholarship
·         Data Visualization
·         Data Sharing and Scholarly Impact
·         Strategies for disciplinary specific data
·         Any topics that might further inform our discussion about the role of academic libraries in Open Data and Data Management.
This is not an exhaustive list; we encourage creative and collaborative proposals.
Submit an abstract up to 200 words by May 2, 2016.
