LIBER Webinar: Reproducibility Librarianship in Practice

Posted: 16-11-2018 Topics: Research Data Management

Join us at 1500 CET on 4 December 2018 for a LIBER Webinar: Reproducibility Librarianship in Practice.

As research across domains of study has become increasingly reliant on digital tools (librarianship included), the challenges in reproducibility have grown. Alongside this reproducibility challenge are the demands for open scholarship, such as releasing code, data, and articles under an open license.

Before, researchers out in the field used to capture their environments through observation, drawings, photographs, and videos; now, researchers and the librarians who work alongside them must capture digital environments and what they contain (e.g. code and data) to achieve reproducibility. Librarians are well-positioned to help patrons open their scholarship, and it’s time to build in reproducibility as a part of our services.

Librarians are already engaged with research data management, open access publishing, grant compliance, pre-registration, and it’s time we as a profession add reproducibility to that repertoire. In this webinar, organised by LIBER’s Research Data Management Working Group, speaker Vicky Steeves will discuss how she’s built services around reproducibility as a dual appointment between the Libraries and the Center for Data Science at New York University.

Please note: LIBER’s webinar room allows 200 people to attend. Enter the room early to ensure your spot. If the room is full when you try to join, don’t worry! We’ll share a recording afterwards.
