embracing library-supported research data management services

The following is excerpted from an invited talk I gave at the Oklahoma State University Library in early April. I’ve embedded the slides below but you can also scroll through for my notes – not the most thorough writeup I’ve ever written but enough to give you a glimpse at my discussion points! I’d love… Continue reading embracing library-supported research data management services

my ACRL digital curation interest group webinar

I gave a webinar for ACRL’s Digital Curation Interest Group (DCIG) earlier this month! As hard as it always is to give recordings a fresh listen and hear all the times I say umm and so!, what can you do? I had fun and I’m so glad I could share some of my ideas on shaping RDM and digital… Continue reading my ACRL digital curation interest group webinar

my new workshop series: digital scholarship topics for early career researchers

I am leading a workshop series this semester! It’s sort of an unexpected development. After I gave my scholarly communication talk I got rather fired up. I had this jolt. Why am I talking about this need and not doing anything about it. It was an eerie moment of responsibility. You see the need. You’re… Continue reading my new workshop series: digital scholarship topics for early career researchers

scholarly communication + research libraries

Scholarly communication topics make up a great deal of my personal and professional interests. I’ve rarely gotten to unpack them in my current role, so it was a delight to be asked to speak to around 40-50 of my colleagues at the UW Libraries teaching and learning retreat in early August. Preparing and giving this… Continue reading scholarly communication + research libraries

The Digital Humanities Research Network was a breath of fresh air for me in my first year at UW as I struggled to connect and find community. I’m excited to be a coordinator for the 2015-2016 academic year, which will allow… Continue reading UW digital humanities + art symposium 2015

practical ideas for developing meaningful online engagement

In my quest to finally post and annotate my slate of spring slide decks prior to the fall onslaught, I don’t want to leave out my LYRASIS eGathering talk. It is very near and dear to me as my first invited paid presentation – and my first webinar. Looking back, I am so appreciative to… Continue reading practical ideas for developing meaningful online engagement

RDAP 2015

This year (several months ago, ahem) I presented at the Research Data Access & Preservation Summit, held in nearby Minneapolis. I led a panel focused on different RDM collaboration and service models at institutions. I was joined by Cynthia Hudson-Vitale from Washington University in St. Louis and Amy Nurnberger from Columbia University. Our abstract: Research… Continue reading RDAP 2015

LIS Education Symposium [pt. 1]

This is part one, where I share general thoughts on #LISed15. Check out part two to read through an annotated version of my presentation. I found out about the LIS Ed Symposium in February, when I was contacted by HLS writer Nicole about participating in a keynote talk aimed at bringing together a handful of… Continue reading LIS Education Symposium [pt. 1]

my job hunt: interview! [pt. 4]

This is the fourth post of a multi-part series where I talk about my job hunt. Read part one (prepping through library school jobs and classes), part two (library school extras), and part three (cover letter & resume/CV). So we’ve made it this far. The interview! The scary part. Let me share some snippets of my… Continue reading my job hunt: interview! [pt. 4]
