Special Journal Issue Focuses on Data Literacy and Librarians

Time for some reading: the latest issue of the Journal of eScience Librarianship focuses on the role of librarians in data literacy. Included are articles on data management education initiatives, designing RDM curriculum for librarians and graduate students, as well as some case studies from different institutions that used the New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum in order to teach RDM to various constituencies.

Also featured is an "eScience in Action" piece titled Lessons Learned from a Research Data Management Pilot Course at an Academic Library, from the UW's own Mahria Lebow, Jennifer Muilenburg, and Joanne Rich, detailing their experience teaching a research data management course to graduate students in early 2014.

We're hoping to set aside some time to read through these articles in the next few weeks, and will hope to include some reaction here. Stay tuned!
