Title: Building an E-science Portal for Librarians: A Model of Collaboration
Purpose: This poster focuses on the collaboration among science and medical librarians from multiple diverse New England research institutions in designing and aggregating content for an e-science portal.
Brief Description: This project is funded through a subcontract with the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region. It is based on a collaborative framework consisting of a project advisory board, an editorial board of content editors, and a web development technical team. This comprehensive portal, aimed at librarians, provides news, links to annotated e-science resources, and a discussion forum. Members of the portal editorial board include science and medical subject librarians identifying and aggregating content on e-science news and events, tutorials, and current practice accessible through the portal. Editorial librarians are developing a virtual community using social tools to foster discussion and collaboration among New England librarians interested in e-science. This poster describes the planning process and the roles of the editorial team, project coordinator, and portal design team.
Results/Outcome: The collaboration of biomedical and science subject and technology librarians is crucial to developing an e-science portal that will provide the essential tools and knowledge for librarians to effectively engage in networked science.
