Data Management: The Next Frontier for Information Professionals?

With the recent explosion of digital data, information professionals find new opportunities to use their skills to manage this deluge. This occurrence has created much interest in data management in every field and industry. Examples include academic and health libraries responding to the demand that publicly funded research data be preserved and shared as well as corporations identifying internally created data as an asset to be managed and exploited. Please join us for drink and discussion to explore questions, insights and experiences you have related to data management.

When: November 24, 2015 from 6:008:00 PM
Where: Dora Keogh, 141 Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1N2 [see map below]
