about this item

The 22 chapters in this volume survey major areas in data librarianship, from collection development to preservation. They explore the challenges of working with various types of data and service models for different academic library types in the US, Canada, and Western Europe, as the contributors are librarians from these regions. They address data support services for researchers and learners, such as reference and information literacy, data wrangling, and working with restricted data; data in the disciplines, including geospatial data and qualitative research and data support; data preservation and access, with discussion of the role of data in the production of scientific knowledge, data sharing policies in social sciences journals, collection development policies and procedures, and metadata; and the history of data librarianship, career paths for librarians as data service professionals, and teaching data librarianship to library and information science students.
