E-Science and libraries

As I said over a year and a half ago

     A lot of science today is very computation and data intense.  I think
there is a big role for academic libraries as custodians of data and
research output.

Science Library Pad - the role of the academic library and librarian -
January 13, 2006

Fortunately, there are lots of people thinking about the role of the library
in relation to cyberinfrastructure, as well as e-research and publishing.

This month's D-Lib has a number of relevant articles and opinion pieces,
including

Library Support for "Networked Science"
by Bonita Wilson
doi:10.1045/september2007-editorial

Cyberinfrastructure, Data, and Libraries, Part 1: A Cyberinfrastructure
Primer for Librarians Anna Gold, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
doi:10.1045/september2007-gold-pt1

Cyberinfrastructure, Data, and Libraries, Part 2: Libraries and the Data
Challenge:  Roles and Actions for Libraries Anna Gold, Massachusetts
Institute of Technology doi:10.1045/september2007-gold-pt2

The editorial by Bonita Wilson points to "The Dawn of Networked Science" in
The Chronicle for Higher Education (which is not open to read, so no link
for them).

I also recommend the August 2007 CTWatch Quarterly, which was on the topic
"The Coming Revolution in Scholarly Communications & Cyberinfrastructure".

A reminder that there will be an E-Science track in the upcoming OECD
meeting on October 3, 2007.

For more information on this topic, you can see my E-Science category.
