About the Webinar
Presenters will discuss the role of the library in the academic research enterprise and provide an overview of new librarian strategies, tools, and technologies developed to support the lifecycle of scholarly production and data curation. Specific challenges that face research libraries will be described and potential responses will be explored, along with a discussion of the types of skills and services that will be required for librarians to effectively curate research output.

The Evolution of Escience Librarianship in the New England Region and Beyond
With considerable input from science and health sciences librarians throughout New England, the Lamar Soutter Library, University of Massachusetts Medical School (which serves as the Regional health sciences library under contract from the National Library of Medicine) has responded alone and with its network member libraries to develop a strategic approach to defining escience librarianship. The multifaceted model creates opportunities for offering professional development, job tools and resources, dissemination of information, and best practices for teaching scientific research data management. This presentation will discuss the multi-faceted model and how it effects academic librarians and the science and health sciences institutions they serve. Working in partnership, network member libraries are poised to participate in identifying new roles for librarians and creating a reinvention and rejuvenation of science and health sciences librarianship in New England and beyond.
Elaine Russo Martin, MSLS, DA, is director of the Lamar Soutter Library of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The library serves under contract by the National Library of Medicine as the Regional Medical Library for the six New England States and Dr. Martin also serves as the director of that program. Before joining UMass, Dr. Martin was director of the health sciences library at the University of Illinois at Chicago and served in various other professional positions in medical school libraries in Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Washington state. Dr. Martin received her MSLS from the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC. and her doctorate in library science administration from Simmons College, Boston, MA.
Dr. Martin's research interests include: biomedical informatics; consumer health informatics; assessing the information needs of public health workforce; evidence-based public health; and organizational development, in particular leadership and teamwork as they apply to medical libraries.

The Digital Research Enterprise: Identifying New Roles for Libraries
Changes in the conduct of research, from the growth of team science to the emergence of big data, have created opportunities for libraries to become involved in the creation and management of research data. Through partnerships with institutional service providers, libraries can develop new services to help meet the information management challenges faced by researchers. Workforce training and expansion is required to help information professionals succeed in the eScience arena.
Chris Shaffer is University Librarian and Associate Professor at Oregon Health & Science University, where he develops partnerships to extend new library services to researchers. Mr. Shaffer was co-site PI for The eagle-i Consortium, led by Harvard University, which is developing a national biomedical research resource discovery network. He established the OHSU Library Ontology Development Group, which is reusing and developing sharable ontologies and creating curation practices and procedures. Mr. Shaffer is an active member of the Medical Library Association and a Distinguished Member of the Academy of Health Information Professionals. He holds a BA in Philosophy from Texas A&M University and an MS in Information Science from the University of North Texas.

Seeking our niche: Understanding the needs of research personnel to develop e-science services
Data may look very different depending upon the discipline that it is being produced within. Big data, little data, and every research project in between represents a different set of needs and expectations. How do libraries come to know and understand the needs of research personnel (both faculty and graduate students) across the widely varied disciplines of one institution? Through the development of new strategies and tools, librarians are developing services that proactively meet researcher needs.
