Notes

Abstract: In this fishbowl event, we invite iSchool and LIS faculty and administrators, recent graduates, Library staff and administrators, researchers, and data professionals to speak to the state of data curation education. What are iSchools doing to train data professionals? What are institutions doing to address the professional development needs of librarians? What are the real skills libraries should be demanding of LIS graduates? And how can the various constituents in the data curation lifecycle collaborate to develop and foster these skills in emerging professionals?
