    Description: It has become increasingly accepted that important digital data must be retained and shared in order to preserve and promote knowledge, advance research in and across all disciplines of scholarly endeavor, and maximize the return on investment of public funds. To meet this challenge, colleges and universities are adding data services to existing infrastructures by drawing on the expertise of information professionals who are already involved in the acquisition, management, and preservation of data in their daily jobs. Data services include planning and implementing good data management practices, thereby increasing researchers’ ability to compete for grant funding and ensuring that data collections with continuing value are preserved for reuse. This volume provides a framework to guide information professionals in academic libraries, presses, and data centers through the process of managing research data from the planning stages through the life of a grant project and beyond. It illustrates principles of good practice with use-case examples and illuminates promising data service models through case studies of innovative, successful projects and collaborations.

    Description: The first section of this article examines the size of the library workforce and the projected demand for librarians in the United States. Information on the library workforce is segmented into several national data collection efforts. To develop a more comprehensive picture of the size and scope of the profession, we have analyzed data from: the American Community Survey, the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages, National Center for Educational Statistics' Academic Libraries Survey and Common Core of Data, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services' (IMLS) Public Library Survey. All sources, except the American Community Survey, provide a sufficient number of observations for state-level analysis. The review highlights a profession experiencing modest growth for the paraprofessional segment of the workforce and stable demand for ALA-accredited MLS librarians for the last six years of available data. The state-level analysis reveals no consistent pattern of change in the size of the library workforce as a proportion of each state's population, although when significant change is observed, it is most often due to a decline in the size of the workforce relative to the state population. The national and state-level analyses provide a point of departure for a discussion of the federal grant program designed to address library workforce issues, the IMLS Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program. This program supports training initiatives that include master's-level and doctoral programs, in addition to continuing education, preprofessional recruitment, research, and programs to build institutional capacity in graduate schools of library and information science. The second section of the article summarizes the program's goals, provides descriptive statistics profiling grantees based on the agency's administrative data for 2003-5, and highlights promising developments in library and information science education and practice identified and supported by IMLS since the program's inception in FY2003 through 2009.

    Description: The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) is a small grant-making agency affiliated with the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration. The Commission is charged with promoting the preservation and dissemination of documentary source materials to ensure an understanding of U.S. history. Recognizing that the increasing use of computers created challenges for preserving the documentary record, the Commission adopted a research agenda in 1991 to promote research and development on the preservation and continued accessibility of documentary materials in electronic form. From 1991 to the present the Commission awarded 31 grants totaling $2,276,665 for electronic records research. Most of this research has focused on two issues of central concern to archivists: (1) electronic record keeping (tools and techniques to manage electronic records produced in an office environment, such as word processing documents and electronic mail), and (2) best practices for storing, describing, and providing access to all electronic records of long-term value. NHPRC grants have raised the visibility of electronic records issues among archivists. The grants have enabled numerous archives to begin to address electronic records problems, and, perhaps most importantly, they have stimulated discussion about electronic records among archivists and records managers.

    Description: The gender-role & SC attitudes of late nineteenth-century US MDs are explored through content analysis of medical case records between 1885 & 1910 on 167 "neurasthenic" patients. These records document the thinking of the time on the causes & treatment of nervousness. The results indicate a greater degree of sympathy by MDs for those perceived as victims of overwork (Mc Ms, LMc Fs) & for women in general. A marked lack of sympathy for those believed to be suffering as a result of sexual excess or other "bad habits" was noted. F complaints (eg, hysteria) were frequently believed to be the result of gynecological disturbances, a theory made popular earlier in the century. Evidence suggests that M neurasthenia was, in many cases, attributed to sexual pathology. Nervous patients were offered a biological reason for their mental states, thereby legitimizing their complaints. 2 Tables, 1 Figure. J. Peterson

    Description: When King Richard III of England died in the 1485 Battle of Bosworth Field (“Richard III of England,” n.d.), the words “research” and “data” were unknown. King Richard would not have believed that in 500 years his bones would be discovered under a parking lot, providing scholars with a wealth of information about his life and death (McRobbie, 2013). The world changed and we learned how to extract DNA from bone tissue using scientific methods that were unheard of when that long-ago “data” was preserved in a hasty grave (Jones, 2013). King Richard’s unheralded and unrecorded burial could be an

    Description: Interest in and support for cyberinfrastructure (CI) development and data-driven research has grown significantly in the past decade or so. Well-curated and accessible data are the feedstock for CI and data-driven research. As custodians of the scholarly record, research libraries might be presumed to have an important role as curators of research data. Libraries are not entirely new to supporting research data in other capacities, with roles such as geographic information systems and social science data librarians being fairly common. In spite of this seemingly natural fit, introducing and operating data services is a complicated undertaking. Publishing processes, models, and

    Description: Improvements in data processing and storage technology are resulting in an increase in research data on a variety of social, economic, and political subjects. Many datasets could be profitably reanalyzed, but they are at danger of being lost since they are never properly archived. Institutional repositories (IRs) are charged to preserve the scholarly products of their faculty or institution and are increasingly tapped to add data services, but not all feel prepared to curate and archive data. In some cases, IRs work closely with local experts who have a history of supporting data on their campuses (for example, data specialists

    Description: Interest in research data has grown substantially over the past decade. The reason for this is evident: the digital revolution has made it far easier to store, share, and reuse data. Scientific research data are now almost universally created and collected in digital form, often in staggering quantities, and all disciplines are making increasing use of digital data. Data sharing increases the return on the large investments being made in research and has the potential to exponentially advance human knowledge, promote economic development, and serve the public good, all while reducing costly data duplication.

    Description: This chapter is in two parts. In Part 1, the policy framework on the national level is addressed, including policies of funding agencies to the collective response of research libraries through the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) to position members to be actively engaged in data management planning and services. In Part 2, a general overview of the manner in which Purdue University Libraries responded is provided as a case study to demonstrate how administrative policy within a university and the positioning of one research library meet this changing environment.
