Research Data have become a primary research asset that often requires continued access in the dynamic environment of mobile researchers, volatile repositories, transient products and short-lived standards. Libraries have looked after written research assets for centuries and now tackle the challenge of adapting their function to making data reliably accessible and re-usable.

MDLS20 Registration - Midwest Only Tickets

by Cameron Cook

We are thrilled with the overwhelming response for MDLS20! We are aware that many Midwestern data professionals were unable to register so we have added more registration tickets. PLEASE NOTE: These tickets are for Midwestern United States data professionals only. If there are still seats available prior to the conference, we will extend the registration again to the rest of the US and internationally.
