Announcing 2012 ARL/DLF/DuraSpace E-Science Institute — Council on Library and Information Resources 2012-06-08


“The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is pleased to announce the 2012 Association of Research Libraries/Digital Library Federation (ARL/DLF)/DuraSpace E-Science Institute (ESI) scheduled for the 2012-2013 academic year. This Institute will be offered to academic and research library audiences seeking opportunities to boost institutional support of e-research and the management and preservation of our scientific and scholarly record. The new institute will include ongoing communication via the ARL/CLIR Connect E-Science/E-Research Community—an interactive website for ESI participants to maintain contact with one another, the ESI faculty, and experts and professionals in the fields of information and library science to build a community of emerging practice. DuraSpace has an excellent track record of offering professional webinars, and DLF provides both professional expertise and numerous ways for the community to connect and continue the conversation... The E-Science Institute was designed in 2011 to help research libraries develop a strategic agenda for e-research support, with a particular focus on the sciences. The institute consists of a series of interactive modules that take small teams of individuals through a dynamic learning process to strengthen and advance their strategy for supporting computational scientific research. The Institute begins with a series of modules for teams to complete at their institutions, and culminates with an in-person workshop. Local institution assignments help staff establish a high level understanding of research support background needs and issues. Development of course materials for the 2011 Institute was funded by the sponsors and supporting institutions of ARL and CLIR/DLF, and was only available to their members. Going forward, the E-Science Institute will be managed by the DuraSpace organization and will be open to all institutions... ARL members and CLIR sponsors were surveyed about the anticipated 2012 Institute design. Respondents indicated a preference for a format that would include a series of online courses as well as an optional in-person capstone event. An additional focus on humanities as well as the sciences plus in-depth presentations in areas that participants indicated were of high interest will be offered this year. Announcements about specific dates and registration information will be sent as soon as they are available. To receive notification when registration opens, sign up at”
