1 A centre of expertise in digital information management UKOLN is supported by: The Informatics Transform: Re-engineering Libraries for the Data Decade Dr Liz Lyon, Associate Director, UK Digital Curation Centre Director, UKOLN, University of Bath, UK VALA2012, Melbourne, Australia This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Licence Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0

5 ..using personal data for research

6 Share your genome data? Buy a DTC kit Join a project

7 Would if given the opportunity 54% 15% 13% 18% Have not/would not Have had genome analysis Not sure In a recent 2011 survey, Nature asked its readers whether they had, or would consider, a genome analysis (n=1588)

8 Consumer data…

9 One in every nine people on Earth is on Facebook 30billion pieces of content are shared on Facebook each month People upload 3000images to Flickr every minute Google+ has > 25million users From 20 Social Media Statistics (Jeffbullas)

10 …and conversations

11 Data is the new oil. Andreas Weigend, Stanford (ex Amazon) Data is more like soup – its messy and you dont know whats in it….

12 DIY Kyle Machulis Human physiology data

13 Particle physics data Herculean and Heroic

14 Crowd- sourced astronomy

15 Researchers need help to manage their data. This is a really exciting opportunity for libraries…..

16 with a bit of re-engineering

17 1. Leadership (Getting attention…)

18 Six reasons why you should care about managing your research data

19 Photo credits: Harvey Rutt 1. Risk: where is your data?

20 2. Reputation : data access, FOI

21 3. Quality: data gold standard

22 4. Scale: an explosion of data / A single sequencer can now generate in a day what it took 10 years to collect for the Human Genome Project

23 Alzheimers Disease Neuroimaging Initiative: a unique (open) $60M partnership between NIH, FDA, universities and drug companies. It was unbelievable. Its not science the way most of us have practiced in our careers. But we all realised that we would never get biomarkers unless all of us parked our egos and intellectual property noses outside the door and agreed that all of our data would be public immediately. Dr John Trojanowski, University of Pennsylvania 5.Partnerships

24 6. Funding EPSRC expects all those institutions it funds to develop a roadmap that aligns their policies and processes with EPSRCs expectations by 1 st May 2012; to be fully compliant with these expectations by 1 st May 2015.

25 Awareness of regulatory environment Data access statement Policies and processes Data storage Structured metadata descriptions DOIs for data Securely preserved for a minimum of 10 years

26 …and Carrots Sticks

27 2. Research Data Management services (Providing tools & support)

28 Understanding Data Requirements

29 Data management plans

30 Advocacy & Training Informatics: disciplinary metadata schema, standards, formats, identifiers, ontologies Storage: file-store, cloud, data centres, funder policy Access: embargoes, FOI

31 How to cite data What data to keep

32 Data Licensing Bespoke licences Standard licences Multiple licensing Licence mechanisms

33 Tools to track impact

34 Partnership approach UKOLN-DCC Library IT services Research Support Office Doctoral Training Centres

38 3. Developing data informatics capacity & capability (Acquiring the skills….)

39 Sheila Corrall: Libraries, Librarians and Data Many action exemplars RLUK/Mary Auckland: Reskilling for Research 9 areas are skill gaps for subject librarians 2012: Libraries in review

41 Skills shortage for data informatics? Reposition LIS curriculum? LIS entry requirements? Get credit for informatics work? Pause for reflection…. Lyon, Informatics Transform, Ariadne 2012

42 1.Define core components of data informatics Visualisation e.g. VisTrails Workflow e.g. Taverna Analysis e.g. R Play for action…. Lyon, Informatics Transform, Ariadne 2012

43 Very few librarians are likely to have specialist scientific or medical knowledge - if you train as a research scientist or a medic, you probably wont become a librarian. RLUK/Mary Auckland: Reskilling for Research 2012

44 2.Analyse LIS entry qualifications & increase STEM entrants Target Biologists Chemists Mathematicians Play for action…. Lyon, Informatics Transform, Ariadne 2012

45 Lets get together

46 3.International Data Informatics Working Group to explore promotion, recognition & reward Global awareness campaign Career incentives Benchmark good practice Play for action…. Lyon, Informatics Transform, Ariadne 2012

49 Implications of Big Data and data science for organisations in all sectors Predicts a shortage of 190,000 data scientists by ation/Big_data_The_next_frontier_for_innovation

50 Big Data Data scientist ews/emc-data-science-study-wp.pdf Data Science Revealed community survey

51 For a University, research data is a key element of Big Data. Managing research data effectively will give business advantage.

52 Data-intensive research Intelligence Decision-making Planning Investment Capacity Capability

53 Research Funders Institutions Research leaders/PIs Community Capability Model Framework CCMF

54 The ability to take data - to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualise it, to communicate it - thats going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades. Hal Varian, Chief Economist, Google

55 Libraries are on a data journey - the Informatics Transform is the first step in a new direction…
