Dr. Carol Tenopir, Chancellor’s Professor at the School of Information Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the Fulbright-Nokia Distinguished Chair in Information and Communications Technologies at Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki, Finland will give a public lecture (PDF 148 KB) titled “Research Data Services in European Libraries” on Monday, April 24, 2017, at 16:00 at Kaisa Library Auditorium, 7th floor (Fabianinkatu 30).
Governments and funders are requiring data management planning and that research data be made openly available. Academic libraries are taking a leadership role in providing research data services to help their researchers at all stages of the data lifecycle – from data management planning to data preservation and access. Professor Tenopir will talk about a recent survey done in collaboration with LIBER and DataONE, that studied what data services are being offered or planned in European university libraries and library strategies for staff development in data service skills.
University Librarian Kimmo Tuominen will give opening remarks.
Carol Tenopir’s current research interests include motivations and barriers for sharing research data, research data services, reading patterns of scientists, and the value of access to information. She is a member of the Leadership Team of the NSF-Funded DataONE open data project. Dr. Tenopir is the recipient of numerous awards including the 2009 Award of Merit from the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIST), the 2002 ASIST Research Award, and the 1993 ASIST Outstanding Information Science Teacher Award, the 2000 ALISE Award for Teaching Excellence, and the 2004 International Information Industry Lifetime Achievement Award.
