New Issue Alert: Synergy (Issue 7): News from ARL Diversity Programs
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has published issue 7 of Synergy: News from ARL Diversity Programs. The newsletter provides an opportunity for former ARL diversity programs participants to share information about key issues and emerging trends in the workplace.
2000–2001 Leadership and Career Development (LCDP) Fellow, Angela Lee, discusses current trends in data curation and management, specifically in the context of health sciences librarianship at the University of Washington.
Also in the health sciences arena, Myrna Morales, 2009–2011 Diversity Scholar, defines Community Based Participatory Research and the role that the research librarian can play in this new paradigm—from support for or engaging in the methodology to providing preservation services for the data collected.
Last, Minglu Wang (2009 Career Enhancement Fellow) speaks about her experience as the newly appointed data services librarian at the John Cotton Dana Library of Rutgers University.
