Big Data

T. Scott Plutchak, Sandy DeGroote, Heather Coates, Caitlin J Bakker

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Big Data may just be the next big movement in the library world and we’re going to make sure everyone is knowledgeable on this topic. T. Scott Plutchak, until recently the directly of the medical library at the University of Alabama Birmingham, is now Director of Digital Data Curation Strategies at UAB where his job is to work on such questions as

o How can we effectively manage research data?
o What services should the institution provide?
o How do you effectively manage security for that data?
o How do you establish policies and monitor compliance with complex federal requirements?
o How do you make data available for reuse?

Joining Scott will be folks from our region who are already leaders in this field: Sandra DeGroote (University of Illinois, Chicago), Heather Coates (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), and Caitlin Bakker (University of Minnesota).
