Research Engagement staffers Jeff Oliver, Data Science Specialist, and Fernando Rios, Associate Specialist, Research Data Management, collaborated with Kiriann Carini, Development Seed, and Chun Ly, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, on an abstract recently published online (pictured left to right). Carini and Ly are former members of the University Libraries Data Cooperative.

Their abstract, "Data services at the academic library: a natural history of horses and unicorns,” [ISSN 2161-3974] was featured on April 23 in the Journal of eScience Librarianship

The Journal is an open access, peer-reviewed journal advancing the theory and practice of librarianship focusing on services related to data-driven research in science, technology, engineering, math, social sciences, medicine, and public health.

Of the abstract, Oliver said, “Briefly, we surveyed research data services offered at 25 academic libraries and compared the amount and types of services offered. In addition to looking at which services were offered and how they were delivered, we also showed how library resourcing influences the number of data services a library can support."
