Background• Growing interest in research data and how to provide support– Partnership with Research Computing/ High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) – Involvement in ARL E Science Institute• Desire to expand our understanding of our Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) researchers’ information needs, including those related to data and e science

PAGE 3

UF High Performance Computing Center (HPCC)• Mission: “providing high performance computing resources and support to the faculty whose research depends on large scale computing” • Services: • Compute capacity • Storage • Support • Biocomputing Cluster/Galaxy

PAGE 4

ARL E Science Institute• The Institute’s definition of e science: “ e science coversthe breadthofe research activities applied across all disciplines, including interdisciplinary research, butwith a particular focus on the sciences ” • Designed to help institutions that participate develop a local strategic agenda for e science support and connect with others engaged in e science program planning • Participants from UF: Associate Dean of Libraries/Director of Health Science Center Library, Director of HPCC, Associate Dean of Libraries for Scholarly Resources and Research Services

Methods Interviews• Interviewed 4 campus administrators involved in the research and IT enterprise • Each interview approximately one hour

PAGE 17

Methods InterviewsSample questions: • Do you think (your researchers/the libraries) currently have an understanding of e science and the role it plays in current research? • In what ways does the campus coordinate research efforts? • What are the five and ten year research goals of the university? • Are there general policies for how funding requests are made or distributed? • Where does data from your project go? • How do you find people to collaborate with you on grants and how do they find you?

PAGE 18

Interview Results: Broad Themes• Interdisciplinary collaboration within the institution can be accomplished by leveraging existing partnerships and careful consideration of team composition. • Regional and national collaboration is vital in solving problems related to e science. • The ability to effectively participate in e science at UF is strongly influenced by organizational structure. • All interviewees expressed a willingness to partner with the library but not a clear idea of how.

PAGE 19

Interview Results: Existing data projects• Collaboration between regional organizations on data issue (Southern University Research Association/Association of the Southeastern Research Libraries) • REDCap software for database creation and clinical research data capture • Integrated Data Repository being developed to connect research and clinical data, allow cohort discovery • Patient registry being built using IRB data; IRB submission process going electronic

PAGE 20

Next Steps• Library/HPCC collaboration in data management planning workshops and resources • Additional interviews with CTSI investigators • Further development of partnerships with campus IT and Office of Research leadership

PAGE 21

Conclusions• UF researchers have varied data and varied expectations of how they should manage and store that data. • Future roles for the library include education and training and help in developing systems to better organize data. • High level administrators recognize e science and data issues as highly important but haven’t yet developed institution wide strategies to deal with them. • The libraries are seen as good partners, but must be proactive in providing specific solutions.
