Presentation 1

A Role for Libraries in Supporting Ethics in Data Research

The research library, as part of a university support network for technical researchers, is in a unique position to assist researchers in navigating new, complex data issues of privacy, data reusability, and ethical decision-making. The Supporting Ethics in Data Research project explores the current and potential relationship between campus support networks and computer scientists in addressing emerging ethical issues throughout the research process. Through interviews, a review of ethics policies and protocols, and a literature review, this project examines the role of libraries within an ecosystem of ethical support and guidance across universities to better understand the nature of collaboration taking place and future possibilities.

Presenters: Bonnie Tijerina (Data & Society Research Institute), Emily F. Keller (Data & Society Research Institute)

Presentation 2

Recommendations from the MWDL Geospatial Discovery Task Force — Update and Resources

This project update will inform the DLF community about the outcome of last year's DLF working session on proposed geospatial metadata recommendations developed by the Mountain West Digital Library Geospatial Discovery Task Force. The presenters will demonstrate the new standards, discuss the mechanism for and the results of the feedback from the testing phase, and report on the final resources collected and collaboratively developed by the group. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how to assign geospatial metadata in a standardized way that is easily harvested by national aggregators like the Digital Public Library of America.

Presenters: Liz Woolcott (Utah State University), Anna Neatrour (University of Utah), Sandra McIntyre (Mountain West Digital Library), Rachel Wittmann (Clemson University)
