E-research, cyperinfrastructure and scholarly pursuits

January 28, 2009

If you're wondering about the future of teaching technologies and research methods, you don't want to miss this conversation with Clifford Lynch.

"Future of teaching technologies and research"
Wednesday, Jan. 28 - 3 p.m.
Lory Student Center, 213-215
Free and open to the public

Lynch will address changes in scholarly practice - in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities - that are being driven by advances in information technology and the availability of large scale data and information resources.

He will review some of the national and institutional programs and strategies (often called "cyberinfrastructure") for supporting and facilitating these changes. Lynch will then focus on the implications of these developments for scholarly communication and the scholarly record, and connect these implications to questions about the future roles and priorities for research libraries in facilitating such scholarly communication and maintaining the record of scholarship.
