We’re holding a half-day Workshop will be held at the eResearch Australasia Conference on Friday, 14-Oct-16 to explore and explain tools to support the research workflow and data runs between humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) in universities and the data and expertise that lie inside the public sector in GLAMs (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums.
In an Australian context, researchers operating within HASS in universities need access to data and expertise (data curation, digitisation, digital preservation, citizen engagement, and knowledge exchange) that lie inside and outside of the research sector, in particular inside the public sector in GLAMs. There are close working relationships between collection and research support professionals in institutions in both sectors, and the research workflow and data runs across these institutional boundaries.
Data managers, data librarians, collection managers and digital preservation or digitisation managers, and eResearch analysts.
