E-Science Institute

The E-Science Institute is designed to help academic and 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 from academic institutions through a dynamic learning process to strengthen and advance their strategy for supporting computational scientific research. The coursework begins with a series of exercises 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.

An E-Science Success Story

The University of Cincinnati (UC) E-Science Institute team found the course to be particularly helpful in jump-starting strategic planning and implementation at their institution. 

Xuemao Wang, dean and university librarian at UC feels that the institute offered a real opportunity for libraries and central IT organizations to partner together to take a critical look at digital scholarship and the research agenda. By demonstrating the power of partnerships, UC vice president for IT and CIO Nelson Vincent agrees that the institute helped UC move forward towards next-century planning.

The University of Cincinnati team recorded their progress since the E-Science Institute in a 10-minute YouTube video.
