UVa Librarian to Speak at the Priscilla M. Mayden Lecture on eScience

The Health Sciences Library’s own Bart Ragon will be providing the Priscilla M. Mayden Lecture on Wednesday, February 22 at 2:00 p.m. EST in the Eccles Institute of Human Genetics Auditorium or via the program link for viewing from a distance. Bart Ragon the Associate Director for Knowledge Integration, Research, and Technology, will discuss “eScience and the Evolution of Library Services.” This talk is not just for librarians as eScience potentially impacts faculty, staff and student access to the data, tools and resources needed to collaborate, share and move science forward.

What is this talk about? ‘Science is changing and changing fast. Concepts like the data life cycle, data curation, translational science, high performance computing, and data sharing are having an impact on how science is conducted. At the same time, libraries are adjusting services to meet the needs of highly networked and technically savvy patron groups. eScience is a term that describes the dynamic re-shaping of collaboration and workflows in science and creating unique and important opportunities for librarianship. This presentation explores potential roles for librarians in eScience, how new collaborations might form, and the role of the libraries in the data life cycle.”

At 3:30 EST a Meet the Experts panel convenes to further define and discuss issues related to eScience and eResearch. Panelists include:

  • Bill Barnett, Ph.D.,
  • Steve Corbató, Ph.D.,
  • Donald McClain, M.D., Ph.D.,
  • Daureen Nesdill, M.L.I.S.
  • Ellie Phillipo
