Portage Webinar: Where is all of the Research Data?

Date: June 2, 2020

Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

Location: Online

2020

In this webinar, attendees will learn about an ongoing research project designed to a) identify how and where Canadian-funded research data is shared by examining the scholarly literature, and b) highlight data management problems associated with these existing data sharing practices. These efforts will serve as a jumping off point to explore the roles that librarians and the Portage Network can play in making Canadian research data more discoverable, regardless of where it may be stored. Attendees will learn about methods that can be used to identify research data shared by their own research communities, engage in a discussion about opportunities for working collaboratively to increase data discovery at an institutional level, and develop strategies to improve the reporting of data sharing going forward.

Presented by: Kevin Read, MLIS, MAS, Associate Librarian, University of Saskatchewan

This webinar will be presented in English and recorded. Engagement during the webinar in both official languages is welcomed. Previous webinar recordings are available on the CARL YouTube Channel. Links to the recordings and slides can also be found on Portage Training Resources.

About the Presenter:

Kevin Read is a librarian at the University of Saskatchewan and Chair of the Portage Network’s Data Discovery Expert Group. For the past 8 years he has worked in data management and sharing roles at the U.S. National Library of Medicine and NYU School of Medicine, and developed collaborative projects with other libraries to establish data discovery services. He is happy to be home in Canada where he can contribute to ongoing national data efforts.

Portage Webinar: Research Data Preservation in Canada

Date: June 9, 2020

Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT

Location: Online

2020

COVID-19 has changed the world. In response, Canadian researchers from across disciplines are working tirelessly to understand, treat, mitigate and ultimately defeat this disease. While it’s daunting to think of the future during such a challenging moment, we need to be asking ourselves now, “how do we ensure that researchers of the future have the information they need to understand today’s pandemic?”

In this webinar, members of the Portage Preservation Expert Group will provide an introduction to research data preservation, including an overview of current service options and emerging infrastructure developments in Canada. Attendees will also learn about best practices for long-term data preservation, and engage in a discussion about how we can more effectively work together to address today’s pressing preservation challenges.
