Big data has emerged as a significant area of study for researchers, and as data and technology evolve, the needs of researchers are changing rapidly. How can libraries prepare now in ways that will sustain the future of this type of research? Moderated by Karen Phillips, Senior vice President of Global Learning Resources at SAGE, panelists Jill Parchuck, Associate University Librarian for Science, Social Science, and Medicine at Yale University, and Darby Orcutt, Assistant Head of Collections and Research Strategy at North Carolina State University, will discuss the implications for collections development, research support, and infrastructure needed to create a sustainable strategy to support big data research now and in the future.

With useful information for libraries at any stage of familiarity with big data research, the panel will discuss how libraries are assessing the needs of their users in this space, considerations for licensing to allow publisher content to be used in text-mining and other data analysis, and the needs around data hosting infrastructure and data repository services. Findings from SAGE Publishing’s whitepaper on the challenges facing researchers seeking to engage with big data research and the opportunity to engage learners and successfully teach data science skills online will also be shared.
