E-Science Events

Posted by on January 4th, 2012 Posted in: Blog

Looking back at 2011 the term E-Science is my nomination for one of the health science librarianship buzzwords for the year.

The term “E-Science” is almost as vague in meaning and purpose as the word “outreach”. It is tells us little and leaves us scratching our heads hoping for something a little more specific.

Especially when we find out that E-Science scientists say, “Just call it Science”.

Perhaps health science librarians add the E to emphasize the involvement of technology by referring to the digital involvement?

Here is a list of recent E Science events on my small radar screen:

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)
Informatics and the future healthcare Workforce Webinar
September 22, 2011

MLA webcast
Connecting E-science and team science: the changing nature of research
November 18, 2011

University of California Davis funded by the NNLM PSR
E-Science Day: An opportunity for education and networking
December 6, 2011

Coming up: February 22, 2012 Priscilla M. Mayden Lecture at the University of Utah Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library: “eScience and the Evolution of Library Services” featuring Bart Ragon as the keynote speaker and a Meet the Experts panel.

And in December, 2011
Bart Ragon and Andrea S. Horn released “E-Science and Data Support Services among Academic Health Sciences Libraries” providing a summary of surveys amongst academic libraries that have begun to provide e-science support.

Next week, I will discuss “translational librarianship.”
