More Information
The DIL symposium will explore roles for practicing librarians in teaching competencies in data management and curation to graduate students.  With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, librarians from Purdue University, Cornell University, the University of Minnesota and the University of Oregon have investigated this topic through developing and implementing “data information literacy” (DIL) instruction programs for graduate students in a range of science and engineering disciplines.

More information about the DIL Symposium can be found at: http://wiki.lib.purdue.edu/display/ste/Symposium

The schedule for the symposium is available at: http://wiki.lib.purdue.edu/display/ste/DIL+Symposium+Schedule

We have asked that attendees read two articles before coming to the DIL Symposium.  They are:

  • Carlson, J., Fosmire, M., Miller, C. & Sapp Nelson, M. (2011).Determining data information literacy needs: A study of students and research faculty. portal: Libraries and the Academy, 11(2). 629-657.  Pre-print: http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/lib_fsdocs/23/
  •  Carlson, J., Johnston, L., Westra, B., & Nichols, M. (2013). Developing an approach for data management education: A report from the data information literacy project. International Journal of Digital Curation, 8(1). 204-217. http://www.ijdc.net/index.php/ijdc/article/view/8.1.204/306

No registration for viewing the live stream is required.  We hope that you will be able to join us, virtually, for this event.  The DIL Symposium will be recorded and made available afterwards through e-pubs, Purdue University’s Institutional Repository.
