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