… and plan to attend the 2nd Annual True North Science Boot Camp (TNSBC) for librarians to take place at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan), Kelowna, BC, Monday, May 25 to Wednesday, May 27. Started in Massachusetts and spreading throughout the USA and now in Canada, science boot camps for librarians are immersive 2.5 day events featuring educational presentations delivered by scientists.
This year’s TNSBC will focus on Data Management in the Sciences: how science researchers use data, create data, their needs for managing data, and how librarians can facilitate the creation and execution of data management plans. Designed to correspond to anticipated changes with Canada’s Tri-Council funding agencies as these changes relate to data management, this year’s TNSBC will not only enlighten us from the researchers’ perspectives but will allow some professional discussion about the issue of data management in the sciences.
Who’s this for? Librarians involved in supporting research in the sciences or technology although anybody with an interest in science research is welcome.
