Theme of the Conference:
This fourth conference in a highly successful series (see panel on left for links to previous years), this year co-sponsored by the UCL Department of Information Studies and the US Institute of Museum and Library Services, is centred on datasets and databases, on how scholars create and use them, on how librarians through repositories aim to organise, maintain and preserve the content, and how publishers are beginning to want to link their publications to these resources and also bring their own skills to bear on the processes involved. The central concept is digital curation, a concept that provides a comprehensive view of the creation and management of digital data.
It is our intention to make this conference essential for scholars, publishers and librarians who wish to understand the role of data in the research cycle and their own responsibilities in relation to datasets and databases. We hope very much to see you there!
