Hello Everyone,

You're invited to a Data Management Interest (DMI) Group Webinar. Have 
you got data? A little, or a lot? What data management issues do you 
have in common with others? Brian Westra will share his data management 
experiences from a data services librarian point-of-view.**
What*: *Webinar - Partnering with libraries for data management**
Speaker*: Brian Westra 
Lorry Lokey Science Data Services Librarian, University of Oregon Libraries*
When*: Noon to 1 PM EDT on Monday 20 October 2014
*Where*: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/datamgmt 
Abstract*: iDigBio is about partnerships and collaboration, and 
libraries and archives are increasingly interested in partnering with 
scientists to support /research data management/. I'll briefly describe 
some of the projects I'm working on, and the questions and challenges 
I'm encountering as a data services librarian supporting/researcher's 
biodiversity and ecological datasets/. These include supporting small 
collections, migrating data into more supportive systems (e.g., 
Specify), and facilitating management and preservation of image data 
(OMERO). I have plenty of questions; perhaps you have answers!

*Format*: Presentation followed by open community discussion as part of 
an on-going series from the iDigBio Data Management Interest Group (DMI) 
Calendar Announcement: 

See you there!
