Purdue University Libraries welcomes Dr. Hui Wang to campus as a visiting scholar. Dr. Wang arrived on January 3 will be on campus until June 30, 2014. “The Distributed Data Curation Center (D2C2) is looking forward to hosting Dr. Wang and furthering the Libraries’ relationship with the National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NSLC). Our faculty and staff are invited to hear more about her work and to identify mutual interests for possible collaboration with her at a brown bag event at noon on February 11 in the HSSE Conference Room,” says Michael Witt, associate professor and Head, D2C2.
She will also be working with other library divisions, particularly HLS and PSET. "One important benefit of the Libraries increasing global reputation for excellence in our strategic goal areas of Learning and Scholarly Communication, particularly in information literacy and data, is that researchers and scholars want to learn more about our Libraries day-to-work and our faculty research/scholarship in these areas. We are very pleased to have Dr. Wang visiting with us this spring semester,” adds Beth McNeil, professor of Library Sciences and associate dean for Academic Affairs.
National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences
The warmest welcomes and the coldest winter accompany me through the first and memorable two weeks here. It is my pleasure to join Purdue University Libraries as a visiting scholar. I will learn about the data management from PURR and share some practices in The National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NSLC) over the next five months.
NSLC functions as the national reserve library for information resources in natural sciences, inter-disciplinary fields and high-tech fields serving the researchers and students of CAS and researchers around the country. It also provides services in information analysis, research information management, digital library development, scientific publishing and promotion of sciences.
As a member of the department of Subject Information Service in NSLC, I put my services and innovations into my responsible institutes in Chinese academy of sciences and accept evaluation from the institutes. My duties include the following: establish the channels between resources as well as services and users, develop digital reference work and information literacy, develop subject competency information research, analyze subject trends, find subject research hotspots and provide knowledge services for VIP users and key research groups.
While at Purdue, I will learn data services offered by PURR and other libraries in the United States. I plan to participate in some projects and do some work to gain experience about data management plans, data Information Literacy, data repository, metadata, Datacite and so on.
If you want to share with me about the data management, the practices in NSLC or Chinese cuisine, you can find me in the Steward Center, Room G50 and contact me at 49-46659 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for the warm welcome.
