The Find eJournals service linked on the library homepage isn’t working properly right now. The alphabetical browse feature is unavailable, and when you search for titles it will return results that aren’t journals. If you’re not able to find the appropriate link to the journal you’re interested in, please send us email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you a link.
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.
