Dr. Amanda Whitmire, Head Librarian for the Harold A. Miller Library at Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station will present findings from a multi-university study of faculty data management plans (DMPs). The primary outputs of this project are an analytic rubric to standardize the review of data management plans as a means to inform targeted expansion or development of research data services at academic libraries; and a study utilizing the rubric that presents the results of data management plan analyses at five universities. The study was funded by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services and all information about the project is available from the project website at https://osf.io/kh2y6/.
A lively Q& A session will follow Amanda’s presentation, with box lunches provided for registered participants. You can register here.
The ten computer workstations have returned to the first floor of the Sherman Fairchild Library.

Open Discussions: What Does the Caltech Community Want in the Scientific Paper of the Future?
In this session participants will discuss their visions for a more open, transparent and reusable scientific communication. Discussions will start in two self-organized breakouts: experimentalists and theoreticians/modelers.
Our conversations will be led by the morning speakers, using the following two framing questions:
– What opportunities do not exist today that could exist with open publishing platforms?
– What factors would accelerate change?
Perspectives from the day will be shared with the Faculty Library Committee and will be used by the Caltech LIbrary to inform its future planning to support 21st century publishing.
