New DATA SERVICES initiative!
A new partnership has been formed to provide better data-related services!
The University Library and ATLAS are experimenting with ways to collaborate in providing robust support for faculty and students who are using numeric data sets for research and teaching.
Pilot projects launched in Spring 2008 include Data Services Office Hours (Wednesday 1:30-4:30 pm, 200-D Main Library), where staff from ATLAS and librarians with a wide range of expertise will work together to provide reference and technical consultation to help users identify and use data.
Services offered include: acquiring data sets needed for teaching and research; locating, downloading and preparing data for secondary analysis; identifying and creating course materials and teaching tools (including customized data sets drawn from various data repositories) and consulting about software problems. No appointment necessary!
If the Spring 2008 pilot is successful, these hours and services will be expanded.
