    Calendar

    Thursday July 7th Webinar

    We will begin with a “Baseline Module” to introduce the Institute, key concepts in e-research, and assign a self-assessment exercise to get you started. The self-assessment is designed to help you learn about aspects of your institution and its e-research support to help you set goals for the Institute.

    Friday July 29th Readings/Discussion 11:00am- 1:00pm in conf room 1140

    The second “Context Module” builds on the self-assessment by having you conduct a set of interviews of key stakeholders at your institution. These interviews will further uncover how your institution supports e-research and where the library’s opportunities and challenges lie. The interviews will help you turn your self-assessment into a complete environmental scan.

    Friday August 19th Readings/Discussion 11:00am- 1:00pm in conf room 1140
