ALA 2015 Research Data Management/Curation Programming

ALA hasn't historically been known for a heavy dose of data librarian-related sessions or presentations, but it's worth taking a look at this year's annual conference (#alaac15). There's a small but topical group of sessions that will be of interest to data librarians/curators, including a data management plan preconference, a two-part session on data visualization in the library, and a panel presentation from DCIG titled "Conversations with Digital Curation Practitioners," with talks from three speakers and a chance for Q&A.

If you're heading to San Francisco, check out the list of data-related sessions here https://goo.gl/PStgkZ. If I've left anything off, please let me know in the comments. And make sure to tweet as you conference! We'll be watching the hashtag for data-related comments.
