Wednesdays @ Noon: Finding Data: Teaching Science and Technology Data Information Literacy Skills to Researchers Online

This presentation will explore and provide instructional tips on how to find data to support researchers, students, and scholars in science and technology disciplines. Finding and sharing data requires understanding the research and data information needs of our researchers and an awareness of existing and evolving new data repositories. Maintaining current knowledge about the existence, scope, features, and availability of these repositories is critical in today’s research environment. This session will help you develop a methodology for teaching students and researchers how to find and evaluate appropriate data sets. Expected interactions and exchange of ideas during this talk will further stimulate curiosity of our community members and inspire them to develop and implement innovative teaching methods in imparting information skills.
