Two weeks ago was the Opening Symposium for the Illinois Research Data Initiative, coordinated by the campus level Data Stewardship Committee.  This next scheduled event for the Illinois Research Data Initiative, should be of particular interest to IT Professionals, librarians, and administrators on campus. This lecture is part of the Windsor Lecture series within GSLIS.

Abstract:

Digital technologies have brought about fundamental environmental transformation to research campuses because of the expanded capacity to generate, disseminate, and apply knowledge in digital form. This transformation has put unprecedented stress on the traditional knowledge infrastructure. There have been various responses to these changes including the one at Yale of creating a new organization with the specific mission to lead the development of a coherent digital content infrastructure to ensure that Yale’s digital assets will be discoverable and accessible for teaching and research both now and in the future. Just over two years old, Yale’s Office of Digital Assets and Infrastructure is in the early stages of developing a digital ecosystem to support the transformed environment. This talk will review strategy and implementation.
