The 2014 E-Science Institute
December 2013 - April 2014
E-Science Course Logistics
The Institute consists of three modules, beginning with a “baseline/context-setting” module to establish common understanding of the issues, identify existing assumptions, activities, and priorities of the institution around e-science. The second module will develop the “building blocks” of the library’s strategic agenda for e-research support. Modules include assignments for the teams to complete on campus, such as readings, structured interviews with key stakeholders both inside and outside the library, scenario planning, etc. The course will culminate with the third module, the in-person capstone event, where the strategic agenda will be further developed and discussed.
There are also several supplemental webinars planned which will provide participants with useful information related to e-research support. The topics and dates for these will be confirmed shortly.
