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

uw open meetup

One of my new endeavors in 2015 was the UW Open Meetup, the brainchild of myself and colleagues Carrie Nelson and Jim Jonas. With half a year under our belt, I thought I’d provide a quick update on how things are going. The story of our origin is that we’re a bit of a rogue group. We… Continue reading uw open meetup

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

uw-madison data information literacy reading group

The DIL reading group came about in much the same way that other ideas have popped into my head: one moment it wasn’t there, the next it suddenly was. I was leading an early summer RDS meeting and reflecting on the challenge of figuring out meaningful ways of growing our collective knowledge about data management… Continue reading uw-madison data information literacy reading group

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

UW digital humanities + art symposium 2015

DH+A! Another great event I was lucky enough to participate in this past spring. 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

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

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]
