Upcoming NN/LM PSR Webinar: “Big Data 2 Knowledge: Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science”

Posted by on February 24th, 2017 Posted in: Data, Education & Training


Register now for our March 22 webinar, Big Data 2 Knowledge: Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science, coordinated by Nathalie Reid, Data Services and Technology Librarian! All librarians and health professionals interested in data science are encourage to enroll. This event will be a watching party of the video: Introduction to Big Data and the Data Lifecycle, followed by a discussion of themes that emerge and how they are relevant to our institutions. Video description: “Data are created, they persist for a period of time, and they may be lost or destroyed. With luck, they may be reused and re-explored to yield new insights and to spark new investigations. This talk will highlight major themes in the management and use of scientific data, and the ways in which investigators can ensure that their data will have maximum benefit to the scientific community.”

If you are looking for a lively discussion about data science, please join us! Expectations are that attendees will either watch the Youtube video along with the group at 1:00-2:00pm PDT or on their own, and then actively participate in the discussion at 2:00-3:00pm to be eligible for 2 MLA Contact Hours. Please contact me with any questions about the event!
