The DCCP at MLA 19: Interested in Data Discovery? Come to the Information Session on the Data Catalog Collaboration Project

For all librarians attending MLA in Chicago this year, the DCCP will be hosting another information session. This session is open for anyone to attend, and geared towards librarians who are:

  • Interested in making their institutional research data discoverable

  • Seeking ways to support researchers as they share and discover data

  • Interested in learning about how librarians from many different institutions collaborate to improve the discovery of their institutional data  

When? Sunday May 5 @ 12pm - 12:55pm

Where? Gold Coast Room (West Tower, Concourse/Bronze Level)

During the session we will help others understand what it takes to get a data catalog up and running with a plan for sustainability going forward, provide examples of the ways the DCCP works to index data at our respective institutions, outline the level of support and priorities offered by each DCCP institution, and describe the successes and challenges faced when working in the realm of data discovery.

We would love for the majority of this session to be discussion with members of the audience. So whether you are interested in implementing the data catalog locally, are working on your own data discovery efforts and want to share your thoughts, or are a librarian seeking to learn more about data discovery, we hope you will join us!
