ACRL Announces New Presenters for RDM Workshop

rdmThe ACRL Research and Scholarly Environment Committee is pleased to announce the selection of Kristin Briney, Christina Chan-Park, Laura Palumbo, and Sarah Wright as the newest presenters for the one-day licensed workshop, Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM into Your Liaison Work. Kristin, Christina, Laura, and Sarah join the team of Abigail Goben and Megan Sapp Nelson as partners in shaping the curriculum and presenting the workshop.

Kristin Briney is Data Services Librarian, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; Christina Chan-Park is the Science Librarian, Baylor University; Laura Palumbo is Chemistry and Physics Librarian/Science Data Specialist, Rutgers University; and Sarah Wright is Life Sciences Librarian for Research, Cornell University.

“We are thrilled to have Kristin Briney, Christina Chan-Park, Laura Palumbo, and Sarah Wright join Abagail Goven and Megan Sapp Nelson as the first cohort of presenters,” said ACRL Research and Scholarly Environment Committee Chair Amy Buckland of the University of Chicago. “Not only does this group bring a tremendous amount of expertise on a topic that is still new to many librarians, but the enthusiasm with which they have taken on their new roles will ensure these workshops are effective and engaging.”

The RDM licensed workshop will be offered as a “roadshow” along with the existing Planning, Assessing, and Communicating Library Impact: Putting the Standards for Libraries in Higher Education into Action, Scholarly Communication: From Understanding to Engagement, and newly developed Building a Curriculum on the Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy workshops.

The RDM workshop will be available upon request on a licensed basis starting in fall 2016. Bring the one day workshop to your campus, chapter, or consortia at any time year-round.
