The “Dealing with Data. What’s the Role for the library?” workshop took place on May 28, 2013 in Ghent, Belgium and featured 12 presentations/panels. 

The event was co-sponsored by OpenAire and LIBER (Assoc. of European Research Libraries).

From OpenAire:

The purpose of this workshop was to explore where the library sits in the whole data lifecycle, and pinpoint some areas as to what its role might be in the future. The workshop also invited a range of scientists to present their line of research to the audience, with idea about where the library might be able to support them.
