Library engagement with e science

From Here to Enterprise:

Major Gaps

  • Infrastructure and Coordinated Services: central & distributed IT services, library

  • Capacity that Scales to Demand – within institution, across institutions

  • Leveraging expertise and aligning resources

  • Economic Models: contrasting funding models, operating policies and practices across units

Questions for discussion

Questions for Discussion

  • What are current and emerging service needs of scientific communities?

  • What are the challenges to serving multi-institutional research teams?

  • Other useful models?

  • What expertise is unique to libraries?

  • What organizational structure works best to respond effectively to research teams?

  • What knowledge/skills/abilities does a librarian need to be a member of a research team?

  • What models are there for libraries to partner with CS/informatics R & D?
