Description

It’s the March edition of the THLA Journal Club!

Join us at Pizzeria Libretto on Wednesday, March 22nd for our second meeting of 2017! Pizzeria Libretto is conveniently located on University Ave just north of St. Andrew subway station and boasts some of the best pizza in Toronto. (They would say the best, of course.)

We will start gathering at 5:30 and at 6:00 Mellisha McKenzie will lead our discussion of the following (freely available!) article:

Creamer, A., Morales, M. E., Crespo, J., Kafel, D., & Martin, E. R. (2012). An assessment of needed competencies to promote the data curation and management librarianship of health sciences and science and technology librarians in New England. Journal of eScience Librarianship, 1(1), 4.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate health sciences and science and technology librarians’ needed data curation and management (DCM) competencies to support nascent and future patron and institutional eScience research endeavors. The data from this research will be used to align a data curation and management curriculum with the educational needs of an online eScience portal community of users, and create relevant future professional development for librarians interested in data curation and eScience librarianship.

Setting/Participants: The study targeted the needed data curation and data management competencies of health sciences and science and technology librarians in six U.S. states who are on a listserv of librarians interested in learning about eScience. The sample for this study was 63 librarians.

To help you informally appraise the methods and findings of the study, we have put together a list of questions you can use (if you like) for most articles - with no math required! You'll find it attached to the invitation email you received.
