In order to strengthen knowledge and foster collaboration, we have compiled many ways for librarians to find support organizations, programs and information. In particular, the e-Science Community is intended to serve as both a bulletin board for news, upcoming events, and continuing education/job opportunities as well as a forum that librarians can use to post questions or to initiate and engage in discussions. Be sure to find out what is going on outside of the e-Science Program, and other outlets for e-science/data science news and trends.

In addition, the DataLibs Distribution List is a way for the e-Science Program to disseminate and communicate:

DataLibs also serves as a forum for the discussion between e-science and data librarians. The listserv is hosted by the NER. All subscribers are welcome to use this listserv to distribute any e-science related news. The UMMS ListServer Policy will be followed to ensure this listserv is professional, valuable, and useful for all subscribers. If you are interested in staying up-to-date on e-science activities, please be sure you are subscribed to “DataLibs.”
