Know the Libraries
The vision for Purdue’s Integrative Data Science Initiative (IDSI) is to be at the forefront of data science-enabled research and education, and applications in an integrated, data science-fluent campus ecosystem. The mission of the Libraries is to advance the creation of knowledge through the provision, development, dissemination, curation and preservation of research and scholarship by means of access to collections, facilitating digital scholarly communication, teaching information and data literacy, developing dynamic learning spaces and applying library science principles to research problems.
Collaborating with IDSI is one of several foci and areas of expansion for the Libraries. Collaborating with, contributing to and supporting IDSI intersects with several areas in which teaching, research and services are continuing to evolve, and there are preliminary goals to work closely with others to contribute to this University aim. This is done through building and leveraging strengths in the Libraries, and through partnerships and collaborations with Colleges and Schools across campus. Potential goals and current activities include:
