A Conversation with Clifford Lynch
WHEN: Tuesday, February 9, 9-10:30 am
WHERE: Margaret Morrison room 103 (Breed Hall)

Over the last few years we have witnessed several changes within scholarly communication. The way in which research is prepared, conducted, and disseminated has evolved to meet the needs of today, but what role may libraries and institutions have within this changing environment of the scholarly record?

Please join the University Libraries as Dean Keith Webster discusses the evolution and future of the scholarly record and its curation with special guest Clifford Lynch on Tuesday, February 9 at 9:00-10:30 in Margaret Morrison room 103 (Breed Hall).

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Research Preparation: the policy framework, funding trends for research infrastructure, data management policies, and data management planning.
  • The Conduct of Research: the socialization of science – including open science, blogging and other social media, citizen science, the networking of services like electronic lab notebooks, and cyberinfrastructure.
  • The Outcomes of Research: open access, repositories, preservation and curation – especially of non-textual objects including software.

Since 1997, Clifford Lynch has led the Coalition for Networked Information as Executive Director. Lynch, who holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, is an adjunct professor at Berkeley's School of Information.
