Navigating the Data Landscape: Roles and Rules and When to Break Them

The New England Chapter of the Association for Information Science & Technology, together with the Simmons College Student Chapter, invite you to join us at our 2019 Winter Event:

The amount, variety, and production rate of data have increased exponentially and rapidly. We also have tools that make data more available and make crunching data more accessible. With a demand for data-driven approaches to practically everything, there is a need for people who have been trained on being stewards, organizers, and facilitators of information (like librarians!) to assist and even lead the ways in which data is collected, identified, compiled, managed, analyzed, preserved, presented, and used. What an overwhelming picture!

So where do we start? Join NEASIS&T for a day of thoughtful presentations and hands-on participatory sessions on navigating this large and complex data landscape!
