RE:     April 10, 3 p.m.: Research and Data Management Speaker, Dr. Simon Liu


National Agricultural Library: A Vision for Preservation and Accessibility of Agricultural Data

A talk by Dr. Simon Liu, director of the National Agricultural Library, Beltsville, MD

Wednesday, April 10, 3 p.m., Smathers Library (East) Room 1A

This talk is part of the University of Florida 150th celebration of the First Morrill Act and also the Data Management/Curation Speaker Series (http://cms.uflib.ufl.edu/datamgmt/index/DMCSpeaker.aspx). 

Agro-ecosystem research is evolving rapidly and moving toward a more open, interdisciplinary, inter-connected and data-intensive science.  This field will continue to collect huge volumes of heterogeneous data across a wide range of disciplines by individuals or research teams from around the globe. Such data, produced at great effort and expense, are only as useful as researchers' ability to locate, access, integrate and use them.

Data is the fundamental currency of modern agro-ecosystem research. Developing a comprehensive data management framework to enable the storage, exchange, integration, analysis, visualization and discovery of massive amounts of heterogeneous data is central to future agro-ecosystem research. When data produced or published are managed with a high standard and made accessible, researchers will be able to process massive and complex data much more quickly and garner insight about the areas of their interest rapidly through software tools. Experiments will be designed with more insight which will multiple the value of past, current and future research.

In this session, Dr. Liu will first highlight the challenges and importance of effective agro-ecosystem data management. He will then discuss a data management framework which outlines approaches, practices and tools for managing voluminous amounts of data across disciplines and scales of space, time and other variables. Lastly, he will discuss the public access policy issued on February 22, 2013 by the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy.

Prior to joining the National Agricultural Library, Dr. Liu was an Associate Director and Director of Information Systems at the National Library of Medicine (NLM), the Acting Director of Information Management and Security at the Department of Justice, the Chief Information System Architect at the Treasury Department and a program manager in the private sector.

Free and open to the public.
