ScienceDirect.com - Library & Information Science Research - Innovation in academic libraries: An analysis of university librarians' perspectives

How do we change the framework and boundaries of our profession so that we do not limit our creativity and innovation? Maybe we should create centers of innovation that operate outside traditional academic library boundaries with staff both librarians and non-librarians that are encouraged and rewarded for their idea's innovations.

Academic libraries have a critical role to play serving as data quality hubs on campus

Michael J. Giarlo:

"Academic libraries have a critical role to play as data quality hubs on campus, based on the need for increased data quality to sustain "e-science," and on academic libraries' record of providing curation and preservation services as part of their mission to provide enduring access to cultural heritage and to support scholarly communication. Scientific data is shown to be sufficiently at risk to demonstrate a clear niche for such services to be provided. Data quality measurements are defined, and digital curation processes are explained and mapped to these measurements in order to establish that academic libraries already have sufficient competencies "in-house" to provide data quality services. Opportunities for improvement and challenges are identified as areas that are fruitful for future research and exploration.

Prepared for the NSF III #1247471 "Curating for Quality: Ensuring Data Quality to Enable New Science" workshop in Arlington, Virginia (September 2012)."
