- Harvard Library and Purdue University Libraries collaborated in hosting a two-day data management symposium at Harvard on June 16-17. The focus centered on new roles for libraries as part of data management strategies during all parts of the research cycle. Attendees came from across the country. “The agreement by Sarah Thomas, my counterpart at Harvard, to have Harvard Library collaborate with Purdue University Libraries on this symposium recognizes the high regard in which Purdue University Libraries is held for its leadership role in data management. I was very proud of the presentations and participation of my Purdue colleagues at the symposium,” said James L. (Jim) Mullins, dean of libraries and Esther Ellis Norton Professor at Purdue. The symposium was planned by a joint committee made up of Harvard and Purdue individuals; from Purdue Libraries it included: Paul Bracke, associate dean for research and assessment; Scott Brandt, professor of library science and data specialist; and, Michael Witt, associate professor of library science and head, Distributed Data Curation Center (D2C2).
