Education on the Fly for the Accidental Library Data Professional: Design Your Professional Publication

Presenter 1
Michele Hayslett
North Carolina State University Libraries

Interest has been expressed in a professional publication addressing the needs of data professionals working in libraries. Within the context of libraries, issues common to many types of data professionals take on special significance -- collection management, metadata developments, tools targeting specific academic user groups, preservation, and so on. Is there sufficient interest among data professionals in libraries to support a stand-alone publication or development of regular features in a pre-existing one? What topics are potential readers interested in? What formats are preferred? This session will be a facilitated discussion, beginning with presentation of initial survey results and alternative publication models, to exchange information about the needs of the group and devise a publication with the broadest utility.
