Kevin Gardner and Eleta Exline discuss Elements research tool

Posted March 28, 2016

UNH IT's newsletter Signals sat down with Kevin Gardner and Eleta Exline to discuss a software called Elements, a research information system. In this interview, Kevin and Eleta talk about the problem of getting researcher information, like publications or grants. Elements is a software that can help solve this problem by creating Researcher Profiles which will organize all of this information in one place, allowing easier access for the public as well as for the researchers themselves. Many other universities are beginning to use this software and it saves researchers time by searching databases for their publications, allowing them to build their profile easily, and keeps all of their research in one place.

You can listen to or read the entire interview.

Library to host Jake Carlson for data literacy talk

Posted March 10, 2016

Tuesday, April 5th, 3:00 PM
Courtyard Reading Room, Level 5, Dimond Library

The UNH Library invites you to attend a lecture about data literacy with Jake Carlson, the Research Data Services Manager at the University of Michigan Library.

This program is free and open to the UNH community. Light refreshments will be served, and the event includes an opportunity for questions from the audience.

Presentation Abstract

Researchers are under increasing pressure to manage, organize, describe and document their data in ways that enable others to discover, understand, and reuse their work. Increasingly, academic libraries are applying their knowledge and skills towards developing services and support for researchers seeking to do more with their data.

In his talk, Carlson will focus on a particular aspect of data services provided by libraries: educational programming for students to prepare them to manage and curate the research data they generate.

Speaker Bio

Jake Carlson is a primary architect of the Data Curation Profiles Toolkit developed by Purdue and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the PI of the Data Information Literacy project.

Carlson is also a co-editor, with Lisa Johnston, of the book Data information Literacy: Librarians, Data and the Education of a New Generation of Researchers, published in 2015 by the Purdue University Press.

We warmly welcome Assistant Professor Sarah H. Theimer as our new Cataloging and Metadata Librarian. Prior to joining us, she was Principal Cataloger and Metadata Librarian at Syracuse University, where she worked for 17 years.

After getting her Master of Library Studies from the University of Maryland at College Park, Sarah worked in the Washington, DC area for several years at Advanced Sciences, Inc. and the Brookings Institution. She then moved to Boise, ID, to work at the Library and Archives Division of the Idaho State Historical Society, first as Senior Librarian, then as Administrator.

Sarah’s publications include “All Metadata Politics is Local: Developing Meaningful Quality Standards,” a chapter in New Directions in Information Organization (2013), and “What Language Death and Language Planning Tell Us About MARC and RDA,” which appeared in the Journal of Library Metadata (2012).

Sarah's additional research interests include creative problem solving and improving written communication.

Library Welcomes Meg Eastwood

Posted December 11, 2015

We warmly welcome Assistant Professor Meg Eastwood as our new Life Sciences & Agriculture Librarian. Prior to joining us, she was an Engineering, Forestry, and Natural Sciences Librarian at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.

Between getting a B.A. in Biology from Grinnell College in 2005 and an M.S. in Information Studies from The University of Texas at Austin in 2012, Meg spent several years working as a biology research assistant. She worked on projects in Honduras, on Mt Lemmon in Arizona, on the coast of northern California, and more. One of her favorite jobs was here in the Seacoast NH area, at UNH’s own Shoals Marine Lab.

Meg’s academic interests include finding efficient ways to share and archive scientific data – one big challenge here is including enough metadata to allow future researchers to understand how the data were collected.

She is looking forward to providing research and instruction help to the students and faculty in Life Sciences & Agriculture.

Meg can be reached by phone (603) 862-1532 or email.
