Data Sharing and Data Management

People are really to share data, but sometimes it is not as easy as said.  We probably do not want to have the situation as it is in this video.

Library can play a role in helping our parent organisation in managing and sharing data, especially research data.  What do you think?

Presentation on metadata to La Sapienza

Metadata sometimes means different things to different communities.

Mr James Weinheimer has kindly shared his presentation he gave to a seminar at La Sapienza (the main university in Rome).  The presentation has two parts: First is about the basic idea of metadata.  The second part is to illustrate how librarians and IT folks think different about the data and metadata.

You can view the slides from Mr Weinheimer’s blog:
