This webinar was presented to the RDAP community on December 2, 2019 at 12 pm EST.
The goal of the webinar was to hear from the RDAP community about their experiences with institutional research data policies that regulate the ownership, management, and transfer of research data in an institution.
The webinar organizing committee was Sophie Hou, Amy Schuler, and Clara Liebot
invited panelists were:
Kristin Briney, Biology & Biochemistry Librarian, Caltech University,
Heather Coates, Digital Scholarship & Data Management Librarian / Co-Director, Center for Digital Scholarship, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis,
Abigail Goben, Information Services and Data Management Librarian Associate Professor, University of Illinois-Chicago,
Jonathan Petters, University Libraries Data Management Consultant and Curation Services Coordinator, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
Background/Use Case (provided by Clara Llebot of Oregon State University):
I work in a research intensive university as the library data management specialist. I have worked occasionally on data policies during my time here, like when we wrote the policy that regulates dataset reviews in our institutional repository. These policies were usually flexible, informative, and a helpful tool for me. Earlier this year I was asked to be part of a committee that would create an institutional research data management policy in our institution.
I was thrilled that the library was being asked to participate, and at the same time terrified that I had no idea what I was getting into. I have been generally interested in concepts around data ownership, the interactions between copyright and data, decision making regarding research data, etc., but I felt unprepared.An institutional research data policy is, from my perspective, a policy that affects a lot of people, and that has the potential of changing behaviors and research practices in a way that I am definitely not used to. We are still beginning the process of creating the policy, so right now what I have is mostly questions, not answers, about what an institutional research data policy should say.
Main Discussion Questions:
1. Motivations for the policy
Is an institutional research data policy necessary in any institution?
What are the issues/gaps that we are trying to address through this policy?
What should be the goal of an institutional research data policy?
2. Roles and responsibilities
Who should be involved in creating this kind of policy?
How should the faculty be involved in the creation of this policy?
How should a research data policy be enforced?
How should students be affected by this policy?
3. Outcomes of existing data policies
What is the type of content addressed in an institutional research data policy? Should ownership be a part of it?
Are research data policies encouraging or deterring open data?
What can we do, when writing this type of policy, to make clear that the university supports open data? Or should this be in different policies?
What are some examples of situations that are easier/better because there is a research data policy at an institution?
This presentation focuses on data driven research from both a survey and in person interviews to articulate a roadmap for digital collection managers to navigate copyright challenges stemming from the adoption of standardized rights statements and licenses. Barriers to implementation of the RightsStatements.org statements and Creative Commons licenses will be described, including methods to remove such objections to using the standardized rights statements. Additionally, the research will outline the workflows of institutions that have been successful in the application of RightsStatements.org statements, what barriers they met, and the methods that were used to overcome the challenges they faced.
""Pulse Generator Pastry" is my first collaboration with my mother, the ceramic artist Betty Woodman. Betty created the shapes which contain the patterns in the video, based on the forms she uses in her work. I used those shapes as stencils into which both the positive and negative spaces were filled with textures, created using a piece of electronic test equipment called a pulse generator. The video was show in the storefont window at Salon 94 Gallery, during Betty’s show there in spring 2016. on Somehow the rapper ASAP Ferg ended up shooting part of his video for "Let It Bang" standing in front of the work.
The Global Library Services Discussion Group welcomes all interested colleagues to join us in a discussion about serving our library users in a global setting. This will be an opportunity for audience members to discuss challenges and opportunities they are facing, and give their perspectives on what the most important developments are in this field. From online instruction and reference services strategies, to access and inclusion challenges in serving our users across many time zones, all topics are welcome for discussion. Members of the Global Library Services DG will be on hand to lend their own perspectives in this very important discussion.
This webinar aired on January 12, 2016 for members of the DataCure listserv. The webinar covered issues around sensitive data and how to establish a educational program to help researchers protect sensitive data while sharing results of their research.
The presenters were Brett Harnett, Director of the UC Center for Health Informatics ( http://www.med.uc.edu/chi) and Jonathan Petters Ph.D. Data Management Consultant at Johns Hopkins University ( http://dmp.data.jhu.edu/).
- Brett Harnett- the process of de-identifying data especially data resulting from medical records, issues around de-identifying especially unstructured data, working with an IRB and future issues concerning data containing PHI.
- Jonathan Petters - training for de-identifying human subjects data for sharing and developing a viable library service.
A video series that walks the viewer through the process of conducting legal research using paper resources.
Video 1 -- Legal Research: Intro
Video 2 -- Legal Research: Define Problem
Video 3 -- Legal Research: Find a Starting Point
Video 4 -- Legal Research: Read Starting Point
Video 5 -- Legal Research: Additional Material
Video 6 -- Legal Research: Validation
Video 7 -- Legal Research: Summary
Produced almost entirely at Experimental Television Center (ETC), the video uses a simple animation of a rotating rectangle (produced in Deluxe Paint on the Amiga Computer) as a stencil into which are keyed various versions of a processed live image of the river outside the window at ETC. This was my second attempt at a multi channel piece. The four programs have been shown in grid’s of twelve and sixteen monitors. While relatively simple in structure and shown only three times, this remains a personal favorite.
A mostly formal exercise in composition and image processing, using footage of water. Probably the first in a ongoing series of works dealing with landscape, investigating the idea of video as a contemplative viewing experience akin to painting. Filmed in California and Mexico, Developed over the course of two visits to ETC, Final editing at PPG onto 1” open reel tape.
